Gallery of Doors
They are the typical gates and windows of Nefta. The amounts of the
gates are manufactured starting from the wood of apricot tree, drink
very resistant and widespread in all Jérid. The slats are made of
wood of palm tree. To treat them against the mites and mushrooms, the
ancestors deposited the trunks of palm trees during several
months in the chott (salted lake), before any use.
You will notice that each gate has three stops, each one has
a particular sonority and thus the Master or the housewife can
recognize if it is about the visit of a woman, a man
or a child. These stops are laid out of a certain manner: the stop
for man is on the rising right, that of the woman on the left amount
and that of the child, smaller, on the right amount but definitely low
than the others.
