Algeria Doll Djanet Sebiba Festival Tuareg People

Male doll representing the Tuareg people. The Tuareg people are semi-nomadic and live in the Sahara desert, in an area stretching from Libya to Algeria, Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso. This doll is dressed for the Sebiba Festival held every year in Djanet, Algeria. Performing a sword dance.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!

There is nothing suitable in our postcard books at the moment, too bad!

Happy collecting,
