DOGON, ARKS

Horse-shaped containers, embellished with carved Nommo (ancestor) figures and sun lizards symbolized the vehicle by which Dogon ancestors descended from heaven to earth.

Numbers 4-6 are newer copies and shows no evidence of use. Despite their appearance we believe the others were also made to be sold.
