The Dogon, a complex and spiritual people, have a blithering array of ritual art objects. Though they have been studied by scholars for many years, the usage and naming of these artworks remains elusive. There are close to 100 different wooden masks, countless figural statuary sizes and forms, and innumerable smaller objects, from doorlocks to metal castings to jewelry to items that defy meaningful classification. Most of these artworks are associated with the staggering number of Dogon ceremonies and festivals, which are mostly off-limits to outsiders. The foundation of these ceremonies, from agricultural rites, to initiations to funerals and beyond, lies in the many myths absorbed by the Dogon during their ancient flight from northern Africa, perhaps Egypt, to their present location along the Bandiagara escarpment.
