    Dogon sculptures are often commissioned by specific families, but can also be venerated by the entire community. Their precise uses remain largely unknown. Alongside Islam, the religion of the Dogon includes four main cults: the Lébé, which concerns fertility and is led by the Hogon, the Wagem, dedicated to the worship of ancestors under the authority of the patriarch, the Binou, who invokes the world of spirits and is led by the priest of Binou, and finally the society of masks, which plays a role in funeral rituals.
