Ndebele dolls are renowned for their beauty and detail.

The dolls are made by the women in the tribe, and are used or given as gifts for initiation, engagement, marriage and fertility. The beadwork on the dolls is representative of the clothing and beadwork worn by the Ndebele during and after these important ceremonies, rites and rituals.
