A beautiful handmade South African Ndebele doll. From Africa with love!
The Ndebele people in Southern Africa, are noted for their painted homes of brilliant colors that stand out in the drab countryside. Their clothing is similarly colorful. The beadwork on these Ndebele dolls is as detailed as the clothing of the women themselves.

During courtship, a suitor will place a doll outside a young woman's hut, indicating his intention to propose marriage to her. When a young woman is preparing for her wedding, she names the doll and takes care of it.
In addition to strengthening the Ndebele cultural identity, the beaded Ndebele dolls are now an important export item and much-needed source of income for the Ndebele woman.
