This flap is made up of a carved panel. The motifs are associated with the rich Cosmogon Dogon. The characters can symbolize previous generations, mythical ancestors, but the owners of the attic also appear frequently. The conical elements evoke human and agrarian fertility. Skate mate. Abrasions and cracks.
The motifs 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 doors are cut from woods chosen according to the function of the building in which they will be used, because each plant is attributed to particular virtues.
