Bhutan Dolls Thimphu

Matching couple of Bhutanese dolls from Thimphu. Heads made of painted nuts. Kira is the dress for women and gho is a men’s outfit. Law requires that all Bhutanese people wear national costume in public. The white scarf is worn on formal occasions.

Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!

No postcard available. There should be a nice postcard here that matches these dolls, to show you how the people living in Bhutan are dressed in their traditional costume.

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

Happy collecting,
