Dogon stool (N° 18030)

Circular monoxyle seat in the center of which caryatids, arranged around a central pillar, support the upper plate. The contours are engraved with jagged friezes, a symbol related to water and creation. The wood is polished by use at the level of the seat. Cracks and erosions testify to the life of this original piece. The Dogon are a people renowned for their cosmogony, esotericism, myths and legends. Their population is estimated at about 300,000 souls living southwest of the Niger loop in the Mopti region of Mali (Bandiagara, Koro, Banka), near Douentza and part of northern Burkina (northwest of Ouahigouya). The villages are often perched on the top of scree on the side of hills, according to a unique architecture. The history of the migrations and settlements of the Dogon (about ten main groups, about fifteen different languages), involves several hypotheses. For some historians, the Dogon would have fled from an area located west of their current location, following an aggression.
