Around 1970 - Very good condition

Ethnic group: DOGON.
Estimated age: 1970.
Dimensions, in cm: 38 x 7 cm.
Weight: 0,800 kilograms.

Very nice ancient bronze, of a large size and filled.

Very nice craftsmanship, plenty of finesse, with a splendid patina.

According to the DOGON myths, the primordial couple gave birth to three other couples at the origin of the eight ancestors of the DOGON lineages: the Nommos. These sculptures were stored in a cave. The remains of important people were presented to them before their burial.

    Good object - but the stand offered as included was not sent. Seller promised compensation for missing stand, but didn't pay the compensation and didn't react to reminder. Finally money received.
