Item : Dogon figure, Picture : Three quarters view (approx. 11 Kbytes)


The cubist character of this statue makes it possible to attribute this very old figure to the Dogon style of the Seno plain, area bordering on Burkina Faso. This standing male figure (probably a protective ancestor), with very structured forms, alternating round, angular, tubular and conical volumes, give the work a strong geometrical force.

The oozing patina is due to a constant and aged shea butter and palm oil impregnation. Native and ancient repair of the right arm.

18th / 19th century.
