Solid wooden doors hand carved with elaborately relief designs, were used to enclose and protect the grain procured from the village's fields. Some, like this one shown here, was used for high ranking nobles and chiefs. This door in particular, beautifully rendered with many symbols, was placed in the dwellings of a chief. The large size crocodile displayed on the lower part of the door is presumed to be protecting the home, and also symbolizing Baule's mythology. Fine naturally aged patina .... and is in excellent condition, perfectly wired and ready for your beautiful spacious wall!
