Dogon figure (N° 20049)

Figure sitting on a seat used for the rites of the sigi, hands on knees. The face is very delicately carved, conferring a soft and reserved physiognomy, framed by braided pigtails. Beautiful dark patina, irregular surface, residual crusty inlays.
Carved for the most part on commission by a family, Dogon statues may also be the object of worship by the entire community. However, their functions remain little known. In parallel with Islam, Dogon religious rites are organized around four main cults: the Lebe, relating to fertility, under the spiritual authority of the Hogon, the Wagem, the cult of the ancestors under the authority of the patriarch, the Binou invoking the world of the spirits and directed by the priest of the Binou, and the society of the masks concerning funerals.
