Dogon Tomo kä statue (N° 19601)

French African tribal art collection.
This African sculpture Dogon, offering common elements with Bambara statues, comes from the Parisian gallery Ratton. Presented to several renowned auction houses this work was estimated at 6,0000 euros.
Works of this type, named " dege dal nda ", or " terrace sculptures ", are used at funerals of dignitaries, adorned and clothed, on the roofs of their homes. These works coated with a black glazed patina illustrate the statuary of the Seno Plain, a region stretching from the foot of the Bandiagara cliff to Burkina Faso. At the end of the ceremony, they will return to the Hogon. Standing in a dynamic position, with large digited hands extending semi-flexed tubular arms, this female figure is characterized by her conical chest, draped shoulders, and a face with a lively expression. Large semi-circular ears, pierced, must have had earrings. Only a double row of pearls remains, emphasizing the narrow bust, drawing the eye to the curved lower limbs.
Misses. Dark glossy patina. Abrasions.
