Second half 20th century - good condition
Following the FALI tradition, men crafted/ordered such Ham Pilu fertillity dolls to give them to their promised wife. In order to fulfil the desire of having a child. They firmly believed that Ham Pilu dolls could do this!
The higher a man was ranked in the hierarchy of the tribe, the more exuberant the Ham Pilu had to be. The woman cherished the Ham Pilu as if it was her own child, until the birth of her own baby. Then, the Ham Pilu always remained next to the child, to protect him against evil spirits and diseases.
This is a magnificent tribal object with many beads in different colours. An exceptionally “complete” figurine with some light traces of wear and tear, which remains in good condition.
