Dogon stool (N° 20456)

The usual objects in African art.
Five angular feet form the center of this Dogon seat made of a very dense wood. The seat, polished by use, offers a light brown golden patina. Slight cracks, missing at the base. The Dogon are a people renowned for their cosmogony, their esotericism, their 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.
