Genuine Dogon Wooden Statue // Seated Couple v.1
This wooden statue is not a portrait of specific individuals. Rather, it represents that culture's concept of an ideal social unit. The graphic composition of this wooden hand carved statue constitutes an eloquent statement concerning the distinct and yet complementary roles of male and female partners as a unit of life.
With understated elegance and beautiful detail, the artist distills man and woman to a perfectly integrated and harmonious union. One of the most striking aspects of the representation is the degree of bilateral symmetry that describes man and woman as reflections of each other with delicate and subtle departures that indicate their distinct identities. The figures' elongated bodies are depicted as a series of parallel vertical lines traversed by horizontals that draw them together.
