DOGON STOOL | MEDIUM | NO.1 | MALI

260.00$

Small wooden stools serve the Dogon people for everyday use. There are two distinct types. The simple, abstract ones that we have are very old and wonderfully eroded by time, use and exposure. The more complex ones, supported by figures representing ancestors or nommo were originally symbols of authority for the priests or hogons and not used as stools.

The seat represents heaven, the base represents the earth, and the post represents a tree, linking the two.
