Ndamji Beaded Doll Small

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

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

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

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

Other tribes in the region have been influenced by the Ndamji and have seen the effectiveness of their dolls so they have adopted the design for themselves.
