X Sees Dogon Sculptures in Paris to Introduce African Culture Study

Advertisement is filling in a few of the gaps in our knowledge of Africa with a visit to an exhibit of Dogon sculptures. Our writers will use this as a springboard for further study. This will prepare our staff to write on this region for our customers. Africa is embarrassingly under-reported in the news and many people still speak of the fifty-plus countries there as one undifferentiated entity. While we are better informed here at we recognize that there are large blank areas in our mental map of the area. Fortunately there is a fine exhibit at the Musee quai Branly that provides a marvelous introduction to an ancient culture that has survived. Sculptures of obvious ritual purpose door pillars and massive locks for millet granaries are evidence of a rich artistic tradition in Mali. The uniquely androgynous carvings reflect a belief in the need for male and female to be united. Our writers will no doubt return to their research sources to learn more about the Dogon religion. They chose to flee to the cliffs overlooking the Niger River to retain their animist religion in the face of the advance of Islam. Exhibits such as this form a significant part of our professional development process. You can find out more about our enrichment activities at where you can also find a list of our services. About Us: Our clientele at is global in distribution and the topics they propose are correspondingly wide-ranging. We can meet their needs only if we keep our writers growing - in knowledge and in skills. We hire well-educated folks and support them in becoming even more knowledgeable.
