Suzanne Wenger's House


Susanne Wenger's remarkable house sits in the heart of Oshogbo: a tall Gothic place decorated outside with terracotta swirling sculptures, and inside with a mass of wooden votive figures. Sit on one of the fantastical carved chairs at the household shrine (first take your shoes off) and you may hear about Susanne's incredible life from one of her adopted children.
