Famous for their craftsmanship and intricate detail, the Namji people are an African tribe, found in the Western & Northern regions of Cameroon. Their art/décor is typically characterized by an extensive use of materials such as colorful beads, Cowrie shells, coins, rope, leather, and metal strips. Without a doubt, Namji Dolls are their most infamous work.
Carved from a single piece of hardwood, Namji dolls are a representation of fertility and good luck. In the fear of infertility, Namji dolls traditionally were carved to embody strength and self-confidence. The figures have sleek shapes with ornamental materials to signify wealth, strength and opulence. Each figure commands respect in its sheer beauty and can be used as a standalone display or grouped with other similar dolls.
