Early 20e century - In good condition

Five rare Dogon shrine objects: four in clay and one in stone. The two round figures are the so-called Andoumboulou, two are altar figures and the stone statue represents the Hogon.

The figure on the largest altar is a Tellem-like figure with the arms raised (one arm is missing) and with a ritual hole in front of the sculpture. The small altar has a woman-like figure in its centre with two iron hooks beside her and a copy of the village shrine in front of her. Both altars are heavily encrusted and are found in the shrine of the Bintu Priest or on the family house altar.

The Andoumboulou is an early ancestor of the Dogon people and believed to be at the origin of the masks. Therefore they are found in the places where masks are kept. In these two statues the faces are clearly and nicely modelled, one has a head on top and the other has two iron rings attached at its head and one placed around its waist above its feet. These two sacrifice statues are from Bamba commune along the northern part of the Bandiagara cliff.

The stone statue is clearly a Hogon with his beard and a snake on his head and in his right hand he hold most likely a staff and in his left hand he holds a small person on his knee. All typical signs attributed to the Hogon. This statue is from Kassa commune located along the northern section of the cliff.
These statues were collected in situ by the owner in the 1970th.

altar1 : base diameter 15cm, height 26cm and weight 1785 gram
altar2 : base diameter 9cm, height 10cm and weight 365 gram
