The Dogon people of Mali, West Africa, are well known for their striking wooden sculpture & innovative architecture. The Dogon ladder was used throughout Mali from around the late 19th century.

The Dogon used ladders to climb to their traditional cliff dwellings & to access their raised granaries.
