DOGON, Metalwork, Mali

Despite their appearance most  of our Dogon metalwork was probably made to be sold.

These cast figures and objects, despite their small size, express status, prestige and power. These cast metal figures and other objects exhibit the technical skill and artistry that Dogon blacksmiths brought to their work. Made by the complex traditional lost-wax process, these are all small enough to be cast solid. The Dogon used metal for their most important ritual objects as well as everyday objects, farming implements and weapons.
