NAMJI, RITUAL DOLL 20
Wood & Beads
11.5" high
$100

Despite its appearance, this doll shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.

Thiese doll-like figure were used for ritual purposes, as a protective fetish figure with beads and magical additions, or, in simpler pieces, as a fertility figure for young women.
