Dogon figure (N° 22248)

Sculpture illustrating the statuary from the central part of the Bandiagara cliff in Mali, Bombou-toro, and whose morphology presents common details with the so-called "Master of Ogol" works. Bracelets are engraved on the slender arms, patterns associated with body scarifications remain visible. Beautiful satin patina, eroded wood and cracks.
Carved for the most part on order placed by a family, Dogon statues can also be the object of worship on the part of the whole community when they commemorate, for example, the foundation of the village. However, their functions remain little known. Alongside Islam, Dogon religious rites are organized around four main cults: the Lébé, relating to fertility, under the spiritual authority of the Hogon, the Wagem, cult of the ancestors under the authority of the patriarch, the Binou invoking the spirit world and led by the priest of the Binou, and the society of masks concerning the funeral.
