African Vodoo Couple. Never before and after have I seen there to be a pair of dolls such as this... I know Vodoo always are wrapped and wrapped again, but these two give me a sense of nomads or travellers nevertheless. The 'boy vodoo' has got some kind of weapon ready to protect his partner and she must have stack of supplies sealed in that red baggage of hers.
These were acquired out in the market during a 17 days trip around West Africa, Burkina Faso and Benin. We visited many places on our way to the Vodoo Festival in Ouidah, must have been in January 2008. I will post pictures from the festival on the blog soon.
