DOGON OBJECT 11, MALI

DOGON
OBJECT 11
17.25" high
200
SOLD

Despite its appearance this object was probably made to be sold.

We think this is an "award knife". The wood is light and does not feel old.

In addition to the numerous types of masks and figures used traditionally in Dogon culture, most of their functional objects and architectural pieces have artistic significance, showing the importance they played in Dogon life.
