Ndebele Ceremonial Doll - Small

$45.00

This doll is handmade by women of the Ndebele, some of the smallest tribes in South Africa. Over the years, dolls played an important role in Ndebele culture. During courtship, a suitor would place a doll outside a young woman's hut, indicating his intention to propose marriage to her. Beadwork is one of the oldest and most elemental of the decorative arts.
