This ladder has been vetted as authentic. It has a wonderfully worn overall patina from exposure and use.
Ladders were used in a Dogon village to climb to the flat roof of a home, which was used for storage, living, and in appropriate weather, for sleeping. The ladders are a simple, abstract, intelligent use of materials.
