Namji Dowayo doll

€240.00

African Namji doll hovers with well marked shapes coming from Cameroon. It was used among the Dowayo and Namji / Namchi by women who wanted to give birth. Worn at the waist or placed in the diaper, the dolls were used to increase the chances of getting pregnant.
To attract the good favors of the spirits, we placed pearls and cowries as here.
