Dogon Figure (Mali)

This Dogon wooden figure from Mali is a striking representation of Dogon artistry, featuring a tall and lean figure, a humble face delicately carved with beautiful details and markings, and adorned with an intricately carved necklace. The figure, with its gaze cast downward, embodies the deep spirituality and ancestral reverence of the Dogon people, known for their ancient traditions. Having a history rooted in the cliffs of the Bandiagara Escarpment, the Dogon people have long captivated scholars and travelers alike with their unique cosmology and complex social structure. Each Dogon wooden figure serves as a testament to the craftsmanship and profound symbolism cherished by this unique West African community.
