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.

    Vous vous plaignez le 14/03...

    Est ce de ma faute?
    Est ce que cela mérite une évaluation négative?

    Il est préférable de me prévenir via la messagerie afin de faire bouger les choses..

    J'ai contacté immédiatement les services postaux, je reviens rapidement vers vous.

    Amicalement
