DOGON, HORSE and RIDERS, Mali

These unique equestrian figures, some cast of a bronze alloy and some forged of iron, express status, prestige and power. They would bring honor to the ancestors, the current leadership and the owner of the sculpture. Although rare, horsemen as icon have existed for 1000 years in Mali. Some depict a hogon, the supreme officeholder, a semi-divine leader of great wisdom, or even a mythological emissary from a distant land.
