Dogon enthronement figure (N° 18831)

French African art collection.
In African tribal art, this type of sculpture frequently illustrates the transmission of power. Among the Dogon, however, its significance remains unknown, but could evoke an anecdote related to creation myths.
Black greasy patina. Carved for the most part on commission by a family, the Dogon statues may also be the object of worship by the entire community. Their functions, however, remain little known. Alongside Islam, Dogon religious rites are organized around four main cults: the Lebe, relating to fertility, under the spiritual authority of the Hogon; the Wagem, ancestor worship under the authority of the patriarch; the Binou invoking the spirit world and led by the Binou priest; and the mask society concerning funerals.
