Dogon Male Granary

Dogon Male Granary, Mali

The Male granary, with one door comapared to the four doors of a female one, contains the staple food for the family. The females are forbidden to look in it, supposedly because the wife would leave her husband if she knew he was running low on food. In the background is the sahel leading away from the Bandiagara Escarpment
