DOGON
Object 17
23.25" high x 2.5" wide x 2.25" deep
$400
SOLD

Despite its form and patina we believe this object with four figures was made to be sold.

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.  We are not sure of the intended functional or ritual use of this object.
