Dogon shutter - SOLD OUT
The richness of Dogon culture and beliefs drove them to constitute what is one of the most prolific corpora in African art. Objects of everyday life and architecture have not escaped it and as we see here, sculptors use doors and shutters as a support for their expression.
Dogon doors, used on family huts, granaries and other buildings, are very often decorated with elements related to the Dogon cosmogony. Here, we see on top of the stylized dancers wearing the famous Kanaga mask. Animal representations are often present, with reptiles occupying a predominant place. Here what appear to be lizards or turtles.
