This object has been vetted as being authentic with signs of use and age.
Note the interesting insect/erosion damage at one end of the top. We are not sure of the intended functional (portable stool?)or ritual use (staff?) of this object.
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.
