It's a man on a horse. He could be any man on a horse but this one is a rare cast bronze sculpture of an African tribal Dogon man on a horse.

It's very stylized with both horse and rider elongated. The horse has a decorative braided rope, a skirted panel front, and a saddle bag at each side. The man holds the saddle with one hand and a spear in the other. He has a calm expression but is obviously ready for anything.

The statue measures 11.5 inches tall, about 10 inches across the side and 2 1/2 inches across the front.

The Dogon are an ethnic group indigenous to the central plateau region of Mali, in West Africa. The Dogon people of Mali are believed to have originated in ancient Egypt, though they have stories of traveling from the Mande kingdom. What is known for sure is that they settled along the sandstone cliffs by the Bandiagara Escarpment probably during the 15th or 16th century.

The sculpture has an aged bronze patina and it's in excellent vintage condition. Circa early 20th century.
