Door Mossi (N° 22320)

br>Close systems of Sudanese regions in tribal art.
The door is made of four planks. Schematized anthropomorphic figures refer to the ancestors and are also associated with traditional sculptures linked to fertility. Beautiful locally abraded matte patina.
Upper Volta, Burkina Faso since independence, is made up of the descendants of the invaders, horsemen who came from Ghana in the 15th century, named Nakomse, and the Tengabibisi, descendants natives. Political power is in the hands of the Nakomsé, who assert their power through statues, while the priests and religious leaders are from the Tengabisi, who use masks during their ceremonies. Animists, the Mossi worship a creator god named Wendé. Each individual would have a soul, sigha, linked to a totemic animal.
