The Tonga people who live in the Zambezi Valley, are famous for their ingenuity and craftsmanship. For centuries the Tongas have been carving doors for their huts, using a single piece of hardwood. These doors afforded the tribespeople a measure of protection from the big game that abounds in the area and are believed to keep out any bad or evil spirits.
Each Tonga family made their own door, resulting in great variations of design. Some have animals or fish incorporated into the aesthetic, but the majority have geometric patterns. Their doors are often crafted from the Mubimba tree, making them thick and very heavy.
