Beautifully carved Dogon statue, "Tellem" style.

The female ancestor sculpture symbolizes the calling of the rain.

Usually representing spirits, ancestors or the primordial couple, figures such as these were placed in shrines and treated with great respect. These figures are not Tellem (the people living in this area before the Dogon) but show the old gesture of upraised arms or "Tellem style."
