This wooden female ancestor figure on the lock by an unknown Senufo artisan displays the artist's skill with form and respect for the powerful female half of the primordial couple, with its minimalist lines it visualizes the concept of timeless female beauty, one of the greatest achievements of man in the sculptural representation of the human form.Such door lock figuratively symbolize the act of love: the vertical female figure contains a moving horizontal beam representing the male element, which slides back and forth within the rectangular cut in the back of the female figure.At the bottom of the lock, the crocodile is a reference to aggression, sorcery and personal power. Such motifs may appear on initiation buildings or household protective shrines as a reminder that such places embody the specialized knowledge which is required to combat the evil influences that disrupt the well being of the community.An ingenious mechanism of sliding joints is used to assemble the lock. -Avner Shakarov, Lyubov Senatorova, Traditional African Art: An Illustrated Study, McFarland, 2016-William Rubin, Le Primitivisme dans l’art du 20e siècle.
