Dogon Lost Wax Metal Sculpture-African Art
Up for bid at this auction is a fine example of a lost wax casted statue created by the Dogon people of West Africa The Dogon used whatever metal they had available ranging from brasses to bronzes as well as copper and iron or any combination that was castable. A correct metallurgical description would be a copper alloy. This statue was created in the 20th century.......... Dogon priests greatly surprised the French anthropologists Griaule and Dieterlen by telling them secret Dogon myths about the star Sirius (8.6 light years from the earth). The priests said that Sirius had a companion star that was invisible to the human eye. They also stated that the star moved in a 50-year elliptical orbit around Sirius, that it was small and incredibly heavy, and that it rotated on its axis. Great addition to any ethnologic collection. Great home decoration. ZX-118
