Old Dogon figure from Bombu Toro region (Southern Cliffs) Mali.
Figures like the present might have belonged to female societies and were used for the education of young girls.
They were displayed on certain fertility and rain-making rituals. According to Helene Leloup they were called "so-ma-so" ("listen to me"), a sentence effective for education and for prayers for fertility as well
