Dogon Headquarters (N° 20724)

The usual objects of African art.
Four angular legs, some of which have a carved face, support the circular seat of this small Dogon seat made of a very dense wood. Fine hatch patterns decorate the seat, forming a slight relief. The seat has a greyish brown patina. Abrasions. The Dogon are a people renowned for their cosmogony, esotericism, myths and legends. Their population is estimated at about 300,000 souls living southwest of the Niger loop in the Mopti region of Mali (Bandiagara, Koro, Banka), near Douentza and part of northern Burkina (northwest of Ouahigouya). The villages are often perched on the top of scree on the side of hills, according to a unique architecture. The history of the migrations and settlements of the Dogon (about ten main groups, about fifteen different languages), involves several hypotheses. For some historians, the Dogon would have fled from an area located west of their current location, following an aggression.
