Wooden carved door from Cameroon.

Detail: Royal door, wood, brass framed with faces, circular centre plate & lion

Size:

2,010mm High X 680mm Wide X 130mm Deep

Weight:

29Kg

Detail: Royal door, wood, brass framed with faces, circular centre plate & lion

Symbolism

Cameroon Royal brass wood door. Traditional carvings are often covered with symbolic motifs that represent the strength, power, authority, wisdom, and leadership of the fon (Royal leader or king). Royal animals and insects include the powerful elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, python, scorpion and crocodile.

Shared labour

With woodcarving, one person harvests the wood, another roughs out the form, a carver refines the details, a sander smooths the surface, a painter decorates it, then a merchant sells the finished item. Of course, sometimes one person may complete more than one of the steps, but this division of labour is part of the culture. Working together as a community is highly valued.
