Dogon attic shutter (N° 20084)

The closing systems of the Sudanese regions in African art. This panel is formed by an assembly of two vertical boards. Anthropomorphic figures, highly graphic, associated with the rich Dogon cosmogony, enliven the naturally desiccated surface. The figures may symbolize previous generations, mythical ancestors, but the owners of the attic also frequently appear. Light patina. The motifs on doors in Mali, apart from their decorative value, are intended to dissuade intruders, whether human or animal, from entering. The locks and doors are carved in wood chosen according to the function of the building in which they will be used, because each plant is attributed particular virtues.
