Ndamji Beaded Doll – Black

Amongst the Ndamji people in the Cameroon, unadorned dolls are made by blacksmiths, as playthings, for young girls.

When a woman marries, they are dressed with beads, shells, coins and other trinkets they become fertility dolls, cared for as though a real child.

The dolls are characterised by a narrow trunk and head, with a shapely body forming a striking geometric design.

Unadorned dolls are also used to mark houses when the Ndamji are at home.
