 Additional Information: The sculpture depicts a figure with a vessel resting on the head...or an elaborate hairstyle?  The face is expressive, and the decoration is ornate.  The form is not particularly well known: Dogon stone art.  But the piece came from a trader who indicates it is indeed Dogon from Mali.


Known for their art as well as their remarkable villages along the heights of the Bandiagara escarpment, Dogon art remains today some of the best known and most collected African art.
