Portal Door

Igbo, Nigeria

Portal Door. Igbo Culture, Nigeria  

Decorated with raised circular patterns, this fine Igbo portal door - typically carved from a heavy red wood such as oji or iroko wood - would have been placed in the entrance of meeting compounds belonging to high-ranking Igbo families.

Among the Igbo of Nigeria, an elaborately decorated portal door serves to signal elevated status, relative wealth and good taste - separating the profane outside world, the village, from the family sanctuary, dwelling areas and shrines within.
