Explanation: From a site on the African nation of Togo:
With an innate gift for sculpture, the adherents of traditional religions carve wooden statues depicting divinities. The maritime and plateau regions are particularly noted for their excellence in the plastic arts and one can best appreciate this reputation by seeing the artists transform a single piece of mahogany, ebony or teak into attractive tables, armchairs or extraordinary figures. Decorative wood burning flourishes in the northeastern part of the country. Calabashes beautifully and artistically embossed with geometric symbols catch the eye; one can also find among the Bassars and Kotokolis certain chiefs' houses with similar decorations.
