Parallel to Islam, dogon religious rites are organized around four main cults: the Lebe, relating to fertility, under the spiritual authority of the Hogon, the Wagem, cult of ancestors under the authority of the patriarch, the Binou invoking the spirit world and led by the priest of Binou, and the society of masks. Represented sitting on a stool, this woman supports one of her breasts, a gesture associated with fertility. Its shaved head carries a sagittal crest running up to the nape of the neck.
