PUPPETS & DOLLS
When the concept of "doll" is considered in the context of African culture, they
are usually not children's playthings, but rather objects that are laden with ritual
and religious associations within the community. African dolls are used to teach,
and entertain, they are supernatural intermediaries, and they are manipulated for
ritual purposes.
