NAMJI, FIGURES, Cameroon

Doll-like figures like these were used for ritual purposes, as a protective fetish figure with beads and magical additions, or, in simpler pieces, as a fertility figure for young women.

Despite their appearance these figures show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.
