York's Shona Gallery presents "Dogon Door." This one of a kind piece is entirely hand carved from the Dogon peoples in Mali, West Africa. It is light weight and easily installed onto any wall in your home or office--unquestionably a conversation-starter for lovers of art and history alike.
Decorative carved wood panels from Mali are embellished with both abstract and figurative designs. Most panels depict a narrative of a village scene, per the bottom of this piece. Africans are sensitive to beauty and often associate it with prestige. This decorative door can also be interpreted with a specific ceremonial context. The motifs it contains also illustrate symbolism that would evoke a myth or parable.
