Seated figure – Wood – Dogon – Mali


In stock

SKU: 53.9 Categories: , Tags: , ,

Large wooden seated figure  from the Dogon people of Mali.

This commanding figure positioned at the center of a circular stool is defined by the emphatic bilateral symmetry and formal clarity favored by Dogon sculptors. The composition is striking for the elegant integration of the figure and the structure of his seat that consists of two parallel discs joined by a central post and five carved supports. The vertical axis of the figure’s upper body is continuous with the stool’s central post. His sweeping elongated legs terminate in feet planted firmly on the surface of its base.
