Size: approx. 15-20 cm
Collected in situ 1970.
comes without stand.

These dolls exist in almost all Western Africa. This kind of doll, named Di Kori (son of bone) is created with animal bones (femurs of sheep, cattle...).
Once the bone is cleaned and dried (sometimes on a fire), the head of the family will pierce some holes on one extremity, to which the daughter will attach her beads.
She may also attach a string to it, allowing her to wear it around her shoulders.
Some ethnic groups use these dolls to favour fertility, thus, the woman will take care of it as if it was a true child. After birth, this fetish becomes a toy for the child.
In the Bissagos Islands, the “fihlo de osso” (bone child), crafted from the bone of a cow, is hung on girls’ backs until their marriage.
