DOGON
Figure 31

$250 

 

In spite of its appearance, we believe this figure was carved for the collecting market.

Usually representing spirits, ancestors or the primordial couple, figures such as these were placed in shrines and treated with great respect. Through a wide range of style, scale, belief and function the figures depicted share a timeless, serene quality necessary to the continuity of Dogon society.
