Description

A Dogon sculpture with raised arms, heavy encrusted patina, standing on a circular base.

“The most distinctive subject rendered by Dogon sculptures is that of a single figure standing with raised arms. This posture has usually been interpreted as a gesture of prayer—an effort to link earth and heavens—and it has been suggested that it may represent an appeal for rain.” Source MET NY.
