XL 19" Namji Beaded Doll – Paulski Art
XL 19


Dimensions: 19"H x 7"W (+/- 0.5")
Materials: Wood, Cowrie Shells, Beads & Manila Rope

DISCLAIMER: Please note that Namji dolls contain a considerable amount of fragile Cowrie Shells around the head and waist of the doll. Some of these might be cracked or broken which is acceptably normal. We do our best to highlight all details.


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.
