Description
Carved wood standing older male figure carrying a hoe over one shoulder and a staff or knife in the other. According to the collector's notes, "Hoes are carved and carried by old men who have achieved notable status among the villagers. The wood used in this carving is extremely dense and shows the erosion of age that occurs in the Dogon cliffs even when the statues are never exposed to rain". Approx. 47" in height. Provenance: Estate of Thomas McNemar, (1931-2020.) McNemar lived and collected throughout Central and West Africa in the 1960s and 70s. He established galleries of African Art in New York and San Francisco, selling to museums and public and private collections in the United States and Europe.
