This sculpture depicts a Nigerian palm wine tapper named Moses and has been carved out of wood which is generally used for statues, figurines, bobble heads and decorative furniture. It is a material that can be intricately molded, allowing a great level of detail with consistent texture.
Palm wine production by smallholders and individual farmers may promote conservation as palm trees become a source of regular household income that may economically be worth more than the value of timber.
The beverage is consumed in both urban and rural areas of the country. It is a good beverage for the old, young, male and female individuals. It is tapped from the palm tree after usually painstaking efforts by those skilled in the art.
In rural communities located in the thick forest belt, the process of tapping palm wine from palm trees is called palm wine tapping. A palm wine tapper climbs the palm tree with a rope (known as ete in Igbo land) that is locally designed for that purpose. It is tightly curled round the tapper’s waist.
