Without any equipment but his own muscle
and expertise, a Dogon man climbs hundreds
of metersabove the ground. Ireli villagers use
ropes made of baobab bark to climb the
Bandiagara cliffs in search of pigeon guano
and Tellem artifacts. The pigeon guano is
used as fertilizer and can be sold at the
market for $4 per sack. The Tellem artifacts,
such as brass statues and wooden headrests,
bring high prices from Western art collectors
