Made in Cameroon by blacksmiths from the Namji tribe, these dolls are originally unadorned and used as playthings for young girls. Upon reaching puberty the doll becomes a fertility doll and is dressed in beads, shells, coins and other trinkets and are cared for as though a real child. Characterised by a narrow trunk and head, these dolls form a striking geometric design as they are handmade each one is unique, varying in adornment, jewellery and characteristics.
