Nok Sculpture
Relation to Nigeria:
Nok Sculptures were one of the first artifacts of Nigeria's Indigenous people. Nok Sculptures were said to be stolen by theives and sold in international markets. Nok sculptures showed stories and the life values of the creator. People in Nigeria today still admire the Nok scupltures and their essence. To have an authentic Nok sculpture in your home, you must be among the wealthy or in the government's family.
Relation to Nigeria:
It is believed that some cultures used gele before the days of slavery so people could show their traits. Men showed off their wealth. (When men wear a gele, they call it a fela). Women wore gele so that they could prove that they were prosperous and spiritual. Geles and felas are worn today at Nigerian parties to show respect. The color of your gele/fela at a wedding can show whose family you are a part of (being husband's family or wife's family).
Relation to Nigeria:
The flag of Nigeria was most recently adopted on 1 October 1960. It consists of vertical bands of green, white, and green. The green stands for Nigeria's green land, and the white represents peace and unity.Nigeria has a vote yearly to elect the president. The president has a maximum of 2 4-year terms (a total of 8 years). The government house is found in Lagos but the president's where abouts are consistently moves for safety.
