Senufo Equestrian Figure

$2,500.00
This elegantly carved horse with seated rider dates to the Mid-20th Century. Carved softwood, species unknown. In Senufo art, the horse symbolizes power and here it is overpowered by the authority of the rider. The disproportion between the large rider and the relatively much smaller horse shows the power of the rider. In the 19th Century, horseback riders were a common site in Senufo villiages; as Senufo leaders or foreign invaders.
