African granary door of the DOGON. These doors were used to close an above ground grain storage. The door is embellished with decorations in relief. Fine figures were carved in the wood. (Bottom row with hands in front of the eyes) Lock slider is no longer present.
The Dogon live in the region of the Bandiagara Escarpment which is located east of the Niger River, approximately 150 kilometres from the town of Djenné. Dogon villages are established on and below this escarpment.
One of the most important ceremonies celebrates innovation and the return of life and will take place in spring.
