Cancello (1) - Legno - Dogon - Mali
metà del XX secolo - Buone condizioni

Old granary door, Dogon people, from Mali

Material: wood.
Item’s condition: Overall good condition
Provenance: Private Belgian Collection.

These doors 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 low reliefs are carved on several panels, held together by iron staples.
Our selection ranges from simpler old ones to the complex ones, popular today. All of these are wired, ready to be hung, and are shippable, unlike many of the large doors.

Mint condition.
