Ref: sf-2136Height: 44cmProduct DescriptionAltar table of Dogon ancestors. Old piece over 50 years old. Piece on base. The Dogons are a people of Mali, West Africa. Their total population in Mali is estimated at 700,000 people. They occupy the region, called Pays Dogon, which goes from the Bandiagara cliff to the southwest of the Niger bend. Some Dogons are settled in the north of Burkina Faso, others have settled in Côte d'Ivoire. The Dogons are above all farmers (mainly millet) and blacksmiths. They are famous for their cosmogony and their sculptures. The language spoken by the Dogons is Dogon, which includes several dialects. There is also a secret language, the sigi so, a language reserved for the society of masks. The Dogons are linked with the Bozo ethnic group by joking kinship (called sinankunya in Mali). Dogons and Bozos make fun of each other, but, at the same time, owe each other mutual assistance. in Mali, the Dogon are the heirs of an exceptional ethnic artistic tradition: Each work of art bears witness to both the intimacy of the families - the works are not intended to be seen but on the contrary kept in the darkness of the houses , such as at the sanctuary- and the representation of a unique cosmogony which structures daily life like the rhythm and rituals of societal or initiation ceremonies. Cosmogony and social organization Dogon or Hebbe literally means "pagan"; or the one who refuses to integrate into Islam. the Dogon worship the god Amma. Amma according to their cosmogony looked like an egg. The Dogon statuary always presents ovoid heads signifying this God of the sky. Amma is associated with eight ancestors, representing the hierarchy of a society built on a patriarchal model. These eight ancestors respond to a trade and specific colors: Blacksmith and potter – red and blue Farmer – white and green Sculptor - orange Dancer – white Trader – black The master of speech/weaving – green. Dogon Masks and Statuary Associated with the cult of the ancestors, the Dogon masks made in memory of the deceased - Sirige mask, Kanaga mask, are often accompanied by zoomorphic masks whose function is to protect the living by recovering the vital force of beings or animals that have disappeared. Unlike statues, these masks are sculpted by non-specialists. The sculpture of the statues belongs to the blacksmith who performs in public works whose quality depends on the wealth of the one who places the order.African art, African maskafrican art african tribal arte africana afrikanische kunstPart delivered with an invoice and a certificate of authenticity.The Dogons are above all farmers (mainly millet) and blacksmiths.
