Dogon ladders originate in countries along the West African coast. They are carved out of tree trunks, many of them dating back to the beginning of the 19th century. They were used to climb to the second story of the flat-roofed, double-story house.
Due to their great sculptural beauty, dogon ladders have become sought-after pieces among African art collectors, making them difficult to find.
