TONGA, DOORS, Zimbabwe

From Zimbabwe come the 10 plainer, massive doors of the Tonga people, with simply inscribed abstract patterns.  They have been vetted as authentic.

All of the doors are hung as wall pieces, but could be mounted on bases as sculptures. They could also be hung or mounted horizontally. The backs are usually plain and those views are not shown unless it is critical to the piece. All were photographed in direct sunlight, which worked well for some and not for others. These doors are thick and very heavy.
