Dogon statue (N° 18325)

Hermaphrodite figure depicted kneeling, holding a cut on the head. There is a child motif sculpted in relief on the upside. The wood is reneitled, criss-crossed, with a velvety dry patina. Sculpted mostly to a family's custom, Dogon statues can also be worshipped by the entire community. Their functions, however, remain little known. Parallel to Islam, the Dogon religious rites are organized around four main cults: the Lebe, relating to fertility, under the spiritual authority of the Hogon, the Wagem, cult of ancestors under the authority of the patriarch, binou invoking the spirit world and led by the priest of Binou, and the society of masks concerning funerals.
