In my paintings, you can often find the image of a granary door-occasional including a Dogon couple standing above the door lock.

Graphic representations may be figurative-an animal or human character-or abstract patterns. All are symbolic expressions of a concept : fertility, birth, death.

The stylized characters seen on these canvasses are masked dancers. Each dancer wears a ceremonial robe, along with a wooden mask that represents a tree, a member of another tribe, or perhaps an animal, such as an antelope, a buffalo, or a bird.
