Ecuador Dolls Imbabura Province Otavalo with Flute
Matching pair of dolls from Otavalo in the Imbabura province in Ecuador. The female is wearing the typical skirts of the region, the colored skirt open at one side to show the white underskirt. The male is playing a flute called quena. Both dolls are made of stuffed cloth. The male may be missing a hat.
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 Ecuador are dressed in their traditional costume.
There is nothing suitable in our postcard books at the moment, too bad!
