Chris Pei-Hsun Cheng VIS 21A, Section time 6:00 PM – 6:50 PM Thursdays 10/23/07 Project # 1: Formal Analysis Report I chose to do my report on the Senofu or Dogan Granary Door with a Crocodile Motif at the Mingei International Museum. This Granary Door is dated at around the early 20 th century. This object is, as its title implies, a door used by either the Senofu or the Dogan people in the past. It is a carved door made out of wood. This door was found in West Africa at the Northern Ivory Coast in the Republic of Mali. This door seems to have a quite elaborate design, demonstrating that it was probably not just any other door in the building. It is symmetric, with a crocodile directly facing upwards and split evenly down the middle. The door also has a single crocodile at the top facing a side, and two small crocodiles on the bottom facing each other. Beside the large crocodile’s hind legs, there is a snake beside each of them. Beside its front legs, there are two even smaller crocodiles
