Dogon Door (N° 24241)

Closing systems of the Sudanese regions in African art .
This shutter is made up of an assembly of two vertical boards. Highly stylized anthropomorphic figures enliven the surface. They are related to the rich Dogon cosmogony. These motifs represent previous generations, also mythical ancestors, but the owners of the attic also appear frequently.
Ocher light brown patina.
The shutters blocked the openings of the cereal granary (sorghum or millet) established in height in order to protect rodents. A ladder provided access. The patterns present on the doors in Mali, apart from their decorative value, are intended to deter the intruder, whether human or animal, from entering. The locks and the doors are cut in wood chosen according to the function of the building in which they will be used, because to each plant are allotted particular virtues.
