Seconda metà XX secolo - Buone condizioni

Description: The statue was made using the lost wax technique. It represents an adult rider on a highly decorated horse. Within the Dogon society, horses represent wealth and power. Therefore, the statue was often kept in an elderman´s or high priest´s hut.

Ethnic group: The Dogon people live in Mali, Westafrica, in the Bandiagara cliffs. They are known for their villages which are built high in the cliffs, and their rich cultural heritage. Agriculture plays an important role in the Dogon society. So many objects used in the agricultural process, especially containers and huts for the harvest, are richly decorated. Another pillar of the Dogon society is their appreciation for wisdom and their ancestors.
