These striking Namji figures are true to the more original designs of Namji dolls. We love their sculptural designs with the figures hand carved from wood and then decorated with beads and shells.
The Namji people of North West Cameroon are famous for their wooden dolls. The Namji Fertility dolls are considered to be amongst the finest and most beautiful of the African dolls. Fertility dolls were traditionally given to young girls to look after and help prepare for their roles as mothers. The dolls are works of art, hand carved from wood and then decorated with Cowrie shells and colourful beads which makes each doll entirely unique.
