GRANARY DOOR 8,
Unusually deep in relief, this door shows no signs of age or use and was probably made to be sold.
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.
