YASIGI

Dogon Alcohol Goddess

Also known as Yasigui

Well-endowed Goddess of Dancing, Beer and Masks

What’s not to like? Large breasts, beer and plenty of cavorting. She sounds like every straight guy’s dream. Apart from the masks.

Party Goddess Yasigi is the daughter of Amma. Born from his cosmic Kinder Egg, she was taken into care at an early age to protect her from her evil twin brother Yurugu.

The Nommo Twins looked after her while Yurugu went on the rampage, and after that she appears to have become a celebrity figure. She now presides over the Sigi ceremony, a ritual held every sixty years to commemorate the making of the Mask of the Dead.

Statues depict her as an incredibly large-breasted female holding a beer ladle and dancing the night away. How come we never get invited to these Dogon discos?
