Faceless dolls that represent the Dominican search for identity.
A classic example of Dominican crafts.
One of the most distinctive local crafts you can buy, Limé dolls come in many sizes and colours (as well as materials besides the traditional clay), but share one thing in common: they don’t have faces. Traditionally they symbolised the search for identity in Dominican culture, marked as it is by so many different cultures over the centuries. They’re available in myriad markets and craft shops. Just have a care – they can make you want to start collecting them!
