Description

A Namchi fertilty puppet with numerous pearls, cowrie shells and small leather fetish-attachment; signs of ritual use.

The Namji (also called Namchi or Dowayo), young men give their fiancées a wooden doll such as the present one. Women always carry these dolls with them, either in special containers or in their clothes. Once the wish to have child comes true (thanks to the doll’s ‘help’, of course!), these figures are placed on home altars or ‘bequeathed’ to the children.
