2nd half of the 20th century - Nice condition
Millet granary door in sonoko wood. This very nice object was brought back by my care from the region of the Bandiagara Cliffs of Mali. Dimensions: height 51 x 39 cm ; weight 2 kg.
This is a magnificent piece from our gallery of African art in Senegal, this door represents the mythical ancestors and guardians of the Dogon.
The Dogon are mainly cultivators (essentially of mil) and forgers. They are renowned for their cosmogony and sculptures. The Dogon language, spoken by the Dogon, gathers several dialects. There is also a secret language, the sigi so, which is exclusively spoken within the society of masks. The Dogon are related to the Bozo ethnic group, through the “joking relationship” (named sinankunya in Mali).
