Dogon Stool (N° 22919)

Reduced version for this old Dogon stool supported by four geometric figures embodying the mythical ancestor Nommo. The contours of the flat, oval seat are engraved with symbolic linear motifs. Large metal staples were used to consolidate the structure. Velvety matte patina, abrasions. Cracks.
The Dogon are a people renowned for their cosmogony, their esotericism, their myths and legends. Their population is estimated at around 300,000 souls living in the south-west of the Niger loop in the Mopti region of Mali (Bandiagara, Koro, Banka), near Douentza and part of northern Burkina (north-west of Ouahigouya ). The villages are often perched on top of the scree on the side of the hills, according to a unique architecture. The history of Dogon migrations and settlements (about ten main groups, about fifteen different languages) bears on several hypotheses. For some historians, the Dogon would have fled from an area west of their current location, following an attack.
