BAMANA, HORSEMEN, Mali

The Bamana, like their neighbors, the Dogon, often used horsemen in some traditional sculpture. Only the greatest leaders were depicted on horseback. Owning a horse was a luxury, only for the rich and.powerful or those of high rank. Being shown on horseback was a great honor and so was ownership of a sculpture of a horseman, celebrating aesthetic expression and indicating wealth and status.
