African Woman Figurine Traditional African Woman Statue Xhosa Woman African Doll – Gugu


💛 Meet Gugu.  Her name means ‘our pride’.  She was named by her mother-in-law when she became her daughter-in-law (makoti).  In Xhosa culture, when a woman gets married, it’s not just her surname that is changed.  Gugu is holding a bowl of water for her in-laws to wash their hands before they sit down together to eat.

💛 It’s hard to describe exactly how beautifully exquisite this doll is.  She has been lovingly hand-made by the talented Sibo.  Her outfit is designed from traditional South African shweshwe fabric and has been fitted over a recycled bottle.  Every detail has been carefully considered, from the ruffles on her dress to her jewellery.

💛 Gugu is completely unique and is one of a kind.

💛 She is perfect in her imperfection, please view the photographs carefully.

💛 Please note Gugu is extremely delicate and is for decoration only.  She is not suitable as a toy for children

💛 Size:  Approx. 30cm tall and 12 cm wide.

💛 Sibo lives in the Eastern Cape.  To read more about her story, navigate to the blog page on our website.

Dimensions 12 × 30 cm
