Product Description

ON SALE

Dolls have been associated with man since ancient times and have been found in archaeological sites throughout the world. In some cultures they were used as toys however their primary use has always been connected to the rituals of burial, fertility, initiation and marriage. In Africa dolls are made in various shapes, in a wide variety of materials for specific reasons. Dolls used in conjunction with magical practice for the sole purpose of gracing a woman with fertility are referred to as fertility dolls. The purpose is generally the same but the actual design and accompanied paraphernalia varies from country to country. Sudan is the largest country on the African continent and has 597 ethnic groups that speak over 400 different languages and dialects. The Sudan has an extremely rich early history which gave rise to the famous Nubian empires and Kushite kings. Its recent activity though has seen this country mired in unrest and controversy making it extremely difficult for the people to live in peace let alone create tribal fair. Fortunately our agent has brought us a pair of beautifully crafted fertility dolls. Fashioned from a light wood the bulbous heads are whitened. Several braided fiber strands adorned with multi colored beads dangle life-like behind off the top. Their long necks are covered entirely by embedded strands of blue beading forming a necklace. Ovular chests sit atop pole-like torsos with magical leather bound bundles (that are thought to aid in fertility) hang from the waist, which are ringed top and bottom by thick red and black disc strands. Arms and fingers formed by colored beads fall loosely from the sides. A tan, hide material, dotted with plastic discs serves as bottom covers. Both figures male and female are positioned on black metal bases lending to a wonderful display of authentic handcrafted Sudanese art! The price is for the pair.
