Accidental Mysteries, 10.07.12: Broken, Repaired & Mended

This is what the Lord will do for us if only we will just humble ourselves and ask it of Him!

DOGON, GRANARY DOOR  These doors protected the window-like opening into each family's grain storage building, and used a simple sliding door lock. Primordial beings, ancestors, Kanaga masks, sun lizards and scenes of life symbolically served to protect the entrance by making it sacrosanct. The low reliefs are carved on several panels, held together by iron staples.  Our selection ranges from simpler old ones to the complex ones popular today. Photographs © Tim Hamill
