Description

The door leaf with figural ornaments comes from a palace or cult shrine and took part as a architecture element in the door area, either as a door trim or as part of a door leaf. This panel displays the people of the Yoruba people with sharp headdresses and weapons or coat of arms in their hand.

The door leaf is in very good condition with minimal signs of age and wear. The brown patina is caused by using. The panel measures 122 x 62 cm. (asi)
