Short Carved Namji Fertility Dolls with Beads

KBS1C

  • Modern interpretations of the Namji fertility dolls that were traditionally carried by young girls to encourage mothering instincts and by women hoping to conceive, these sculptures are hand carved from jacaranda wood then decorated with beads.

    These small sculptures, with geometric features, measure 2.5"L x 1.75"W x 8.5"T. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, some variation may occur. 

  • Originating from the traditional fertility designs of the Dowayo/ Namji ethnic group in north-west Cameroon, these are crafted by artisans from Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo who are currently living as refugees in Nairobi, Kenya and have a loyal following in shops throughout East Africa.
