Size H 34 cm x W 15 cm x D 10 cm
Originating from the Dowayo / Namji ethnic group in north-west Cameroon, these dolls are talking pieces for more than their striking geometric features, multicolored bead necklaces and cowrie shells. Given to encourage fertility, these dolls are made for young girls to play with, strapping them to their backs and carrying them around to mirror the responsibility of their mothers. The dolls are also kept by women for good luck when trying to fall pregnant or provide for an easy childbirth. Antique and authentic Namji Dolls can go for high sums at auctions houses and are highly sought after by collectors. Considered to be some of the finest dolls in Africa. Made by hand, each one is different and they all seem to convey their own personality.
