ABSTRACT
This research work was primary designed to lean and to understand the important of a Town Crier and pictorial representation of symbols. In the ancient era, records are kept with symbols of arts. Human images are immortalized in true resemblance of their forms, with a proper study of human anatomy. The use of clay as the primary medium of expressing forms, made it possible to create the status of a town crier. A town crier in Nigeria was a serious means of disseminating information. In Nigeria, traditional means of communication are the town crier, talking drum, Ogene, flute and gongs.
