Great Dogon door (N° 20717)

Coll.art africain française.
The closing systems of the Sudanese regions in African art.
The door is made of two boards assembled by staples. Anthropomorphic figures, schematized, as well as the symbolic decorative motifs, appeal to the rich Dogon cosmogony. The figures may symbolize previous generations, mythical ancestors, and the owners of the granary are also frequently featured.
Beautiful alternation of geometric volumes for this ancient Dogon door of uncommon size. Thick black patina, locally chipped. According to Dogon mythology, The Nommo founded the eight Dogon lineages and instilled weaving, the art of blacksmithing, and agriculture in their human descendants. The patterns on doors in Mali, apart from their decorative value, are intended to deter intruders, whether human or animal, from entering. 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.
