Mixed lot (4 items): Dogon, Mali: four forged iron objects of the Dogon: two neck supports and two figures. - Mimoevropské a domorodé umění

2: A neck support, completely forged of iron. The surface supporting the neck represents a stylised horse: A horse’s head with a mane on one side, and a tail on the other side. Dimensions: 13 cm x 25 cm x 5 cm.

A white inventory number from a collection on the left leg, at the bottom. Height: 31 cm. 4: A somewhat smaller, forged, iron male figure, with proportionately ‘normal’ head, face, ears, arms with hands hanging down, genitals, and short legs. On the chest and abdomen geometric patterns of short lines are visible. Height: c. 23 cm.
All four forged iron objects probably from the first half of the 20th century. (ME)
