Animal Kingdom Artifact: Dogon Grainery Door

   Located directly across from my favorite Asafo flag, these apparently were at one time doors.  I imagine they worked much like saloon doors would, swinging back and forth.  Anyway, we don't get a lot of light in this part of the fifth floor...so excuse the photo quality please. :)
   The Dogon people of Mali are known for their exquisite wooden are and architecture.  Do yourself the favor of a quick google image search.  Terrific.  I only wish Animal Kingdom Lodge had more...

  1. Just searched Google images. Holy...cow. The architecture! Have bookmarked a few sites, and am going back to read more about the Dogon people.

    Thank you!
