South Korea Dolls Peasants
Two Korean dolls, most likely a matching couple. Both wearing Hanbok, the traditional Korean dress. The male has an A-frame back carrier on his back (Jige) which is used by farmers to transport large amounts of goods. He is wearing baggy pants (Baji), part of the men’s Hanbok. The female carries a child on her back. Each doll has a printed piece of paper attached under it’s stand with the text ‘Korea Doll, Made in Korea’. These dolls were kindly donated in 2008.
Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!
