2009 Mid Year Dolls

All dolls have human or mohair wigs.

Tipli and Laki (below) are ethnic Adivasi girls from the Kutia Khond tribal group in Orissa, India. Kondhas use little covering on the body. Women wear two cloths, one around the waist up to the knees and another for the upper portion of the body. The Kondh women are very fond of ornaments. Tipli and Laki have beautified themselves with hair pins, ear rings, nose rings, and bead necklaces. The Kutia Kondhs tattoo their faces and hands. The Kondhs are agriculturists. They produce crops like turmeric, ginger, mustard, niger, black gram, arrowroot etc. They celebrate various festivals round the year for better yield of crops. Tipli and Laki dressed themselves beautifully for the Chaitra parab festival. They both have flowers in their hair.
