10.5" high x 2.25" wide x 2.5" deep
This unique doll has been vetted as authentic, with evidence of significant age and use. The body is covered with stiched on leather.
Owned by Mossi girls and women, these small figures that we call "dolls" could function both as a toy for a young girl or as an object to promote the fertility of a woman. All show some variation of the special coiffures worn by Mossi women.
