19th Century Tribal Teak Wood Ladder

About

A late 19th century exotic hardwood ladder from Nagaland in Northeast India. This 7-foot functional sculpture features a primitively carved face with beard. The ladder is solidly mounted on a black iron base. Originally used to climb to raised dwellings, this hand carved ladder is similar to those used by the Dogon of Mali and the Embera of Panama.
