This decorative wooden panel was carved in high relief by a Yoruba artisan as an entry door to a prestigious home or palace. Known as ilekun, such doors are typically created by master carvers and are commissioned by individuals of special distinction to be publicly displayed. This door is comprised of two joined panels and depicts a man riding horseback with a pipe in his mouth and a blade at his hip.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
