Ecuador Dolls Imbabura Province Otavalo with Panpipes

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. She carries a swaddled baby at the back. The male is playing the rondador, the Ecuadorian panpipe. Both stands are marked ‘Ecuador’ in handwriting.

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!

Happy collecting,
