These shutters are intended to close the openings of granaries or simple pantries. Some are also used as 'cupboards' to store household items. These attics are often made of packed earth and mounted on posts for protection against rodents and insects. In general, the motifs present scenes of the creation of the world, as in the Baoule, or animal symbols, or simply a mask of the trobu, all warnings to prevent someone from opening and appropriating the contents or part of them .
