Details

The Berber rustic door has suffered damage which can be seen in the images above. The plank section nearest the solid wooden hinge has been rustically repaired with metal plates held together with iron nails, also a supporting metal strap has been applied around the lower hinge leg.


These doors are an integral part of the culture and history of the Berber peoples of Saharan North Africa. The Berber door the main portal to the home, protecting from the harsh elements of the region. Decorations and symbols passed down from generation to generation are incised into many of these doors, some decorations of a more modern nature have been scribed over or appear along side older work, the over carvings offer a cultural link and can be very appealing. The erosive climate of the Saharan desert gives over time a unique signature sun-bleached effect on the Thuya wood. Reinforcing the hardship of the traditional Berber life style. The doors often found with inscriptions, geometric images, objects and stylistic motifs of Berber importance. Some of the designs are so intricate they substanciate the owners past status in the community.
