Beautiful Rider in wood, with a magnificent ancient patina.
Throughout Africa, the rider is a complex symbol.
He is the symbol of material power, but he is also the instrument of war adventures.
Finally, in a more metaphysical way, he dominates the mortal and the physical worlds by displaying his physical and moral strength.
Artistically, horses are often depicted as heavy and massive, their legs usually are straight and stiff.
The rider is an important theme for the Dogon, he may be categorised following the many attitudes of the rider.
