Cameroon Dolls Western High Plateau Bamileke People
Two small beaded dolls made by the Bamileke people, an ethnic group living in the Western High Plateau region (also called the Bamenda Grassfields) of Cameroon. I saw them listed as fertility and popular souvenir dolls online but other than that I haven’t been able to find more information about these dolls.
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 Cameroon are dressed in their traditional costume.
There is nothing suitable in our postcard books at the moment, too bad!
