The Ndebele Bride Doll is in traditional dress wrapped in beaded blanket. The doll wears a beaded train (inyoga), which hangs from her shoulders and her face is covered by a beaded veil called a siyaya. Her skirt has five panels which symbolize the five head of cattle her family will receive as a bride price. Dolls would be given to a young bride on her wedding day usually made by her immediate family, in hopes of promoting a large and healthy family.
Each doll is a unique, handmade creation. Colors may vary but will always be bright and vivid.
