Dogon Figure

Mali

Ancestral Female Figure (Nommo). Dogon, Mali

 

The stands with her arms raised above her head, in a symbolic gesture to the gods. Its legs are disproportionately short, and bent at the knee in a fashion common to Nommo figures. The figure’s traditional use as a shrine figure is indicated through its encrusted surface patina and the shape of its base.

 

Ex Private Collection, Switzerland (Originally purchased from Galerie Numaga, Neuchatel, 1967)

 

Estimated Period: Early 20th Century
