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