This is a beautiful and very detailed set of three pieces.
A typical woman and child doll, wearing the traditional attire, hat, folded skirt and “Awayu”, the kind of woven cloth worn by women as a short cape which they tie up to carry infants, provisions or other goods on their back.
A man doll, wearing the traditional attire, hat, and “manta”, commonly referred to as poncho. He is playing the traditional Siku panpipe.
The traditional costumes of these dolls are made entirely of 100% alpaca wool, unlike more modern dolls that are dressed with synthetic and mixed fibers.
The alpaca doll is made with authentic alpaca fur wool.
The Aymara are a South American indigenous people from the Andes and Altiplano regions, living in an area covering part of Bolivia, Peru and Chile. Originally from the area, their ancestors became submitted by the Inca in the late 15th century.
The doll set is in absolutely mint condition, as seen on the pictures.
