The Dogon people of Mali are amongst the oldest surviving African cultures and are known for their rich carvings. These doors are primarily used as a closure to granaries, and when used in a private abode the smaller doors are decorated with symbols to describe the status or occupation of the homeowner.

Styling of the doors varies and includes animals, people, and pairs of breasts which represent femininity and fertility. A herringbone pattern can often be found running down the sides of the door representing the vibration of water and light.

The door latch is surmounted by one or two larger figures who are members of the famed founding primordial couple. Other themes include but are not limited to village scenes, warriors on horseback, animal figures, gecko lizards which represent luck, large crocodiles which denote power, and rows and rows of raised Dogon ancestor figures that all resemble each other.

 

 

Origin

Collection: Nomad Tribe
Made in: Africa

Our love for unique, high quality, and environmentally-sustainable home furnishings inspired us in curating our Nomad Tribe range. Steeped in the rich visual traditions of the African continent, each of these handcrafted items highlights the beauty of natural materials and their textures.

We source from local artisans across a number of countries including Malawi, Zimbabwe, Cameroon, Swaziland, Tonga and Burkina Faso just to name few. The original pieces we source are then repaired and restored in South Africa.
