DOGON, GRANARY DOORS 2, Mali

Doors like these protected the window-like opening into each family's grain storage building, and used a simple sliding door lock. Primordial beings, ancestors, Kanaga masks, sun lizards and scenes of life symbolically served to protect the entrance by making it sacrosanct. The reliefs are carved on two panels, held together by iron staples.

Our selection is limited, almost all of ours have been sold (see archives). These two are wired, ready to hang, and are shipable.
