A Wise Old Man - Dogon Tribe, Mali, W. Africa (c. 1768)

Dr. Cindy A. Milton's avatar Dr. Cindy A. Milton

I was inspired to create this piece following my research into the Dogon tribe of Mali, West Africa. I am always seeking knowledge of art history, and find it thoroughly exciting to be able to ‘resurrect’ this little-known tribe’s way of thinking. I feel as though I have pulled a forgotten world out of the thin air of antiquity and presented it to the future.
