Title: Support Post - 'Toguna'
Material: Wood
Description: Similar wood support posts were used by the Dogon & Mossi people for their meeting houses. A Toguna is a structure with a low ceiling where the men meet to debate issues & discuss politics. Debates often became animated. Anyone who rose to their feet in excitement or in anger, would hit their head on the low roof and would quickly return to a state of calm.
