The journey continues into the bend of the Niger River. Along its banks, crocodiles might be observed, although the one on display was used to hold Awalé game pieces, a popular game in West Africa. African hunters, custodians of ancient traditions that harmonize with the spirits of nature, are also encountered here, reflecting their roles in hunting, fishing, and farming. The hunter’s outfit displayed here was specially crafted for Bert Flint. Further southwest in the Niger bend lies the land of the Dogon people, renowned for cultivating millet, rice, and sorghum, as well as for their rich cosmogony and remarkable sculptures.
