The Bagarra were very present in central Sudan. Their sculptors are known in African art for having created dolls with elongated features, spherical faces and eyes made of pearls. These dolls were also clothed and adorned with jewelry. Little information on their role or cultural importance within the Bagarra community has reached us.
The Bagarra, also written Bagara, were one of the many nomadic peoples of the northern part of East Africa. Constant inter-tribal conflicts and the slave trade caused the disappearance of these communities.
