Argentina Doll Pampas Gaucho

Doll representing a gaucho from the Pampas (grasslands region) of Argentina. A gaucho is the South American equivalent of a cowboy, a horseman that raises cattle and horses in a rural area. This gaucho doll carries bolas at the waist, a set of balls made of rocks connected by cords used for capturing animals.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!
