Beautifully designed barn door made by the Dogon people. It was perfected to seal a ceramic and stone granary, which contained agricultural products that would have supported a large social group between harvests. Barn doors were therefore of primary importance to the Dogons, as the family would have starved to death if rats or other animals had managed to enter the barn. Storage is therefore considered safe, since it is kept by ancestors whose images are often represented on the doorways.

It is made of carved wood.
