Dramatic works of art are presented both in western style as beautiful sculptures, and in recreated shrines that suggest their original placement in an Urhobo community. Many field photographs, taken between 1949 and 2002, offer vivid views of sacred and everyday Urhobo life.

Works of celebrated contemporary artist Bruce Onobrakpeya, which interpret traditions from a present-day perspective, show how modern Urhobo artists are trying to make their traditions relevant in a new context.
