TONGA DOOR 10, Zimbabwe

TONGA
DOOR 10
63" high
$600, Zimbabwe

This door has been vetted as authentic. Note the wood loss on the back; it is still very solid and heavy.

All of the Tonga doors are hung as wall pieces, but could be mounted on bases as sculptures. They could also be hung or mounted horizontally. The backs are usually plain and those views are not shown unless it is critical to the piece. All were photographed in direct sunlight, which worked well for some and not for others. These doors are thick and very heavy.
