DESCRIPTION: Trap door of the traditional Atoni dwelling (ume ke bubu). These kind of panels are used orizontally to cover the access to the attic from the ground floor. This classically carved door is carved with five crocodiles. I have personally collected it from locals in the highlands of West Timor.

The bottle of wine in the picture has the mere purpose to give an idea about the size of the object.
