Collection: Dogon

The Dogon people are an ethnic group located in Mali, West Africa, and are known for their rich cultural traditions, including their unique art forms, complex religious beliefs, and social organization. They have a deep connection to the land and natural world, and their cultural practices reflect this connection.

The art of the Dogon is heavily symbolic, with each design and detail representing a specific idea or concept in their mythology. These symbols are used to communicate with the spiritual world and convey important cultural values.

Dogon art is heavily influenced by a range of cultural and religious traditions, including Islam, Christianity, and traditional African animism. This syncretic approach to art and culture reflects the complex history and cultural influences in the region.
