The Barka Arts Torres Strait Islander Peg Dolls are a family of six little wooden dolls, handcrafted by Chloe, a proud young Indigenous woman from Barkindji & Maliangappa Mobs situated along the Darling River Western NSW, and Gamilaroi from Northern NSW.
From the artist: "Torres Strait Islander Dolls are in bright and beautiful coloured dresses and traditional men's grass skirts, with flower crowns, flower bands, and a men's headdress called a 'Dhari'."
The Peg Dolls are deliberately left without facial expressions, allowing children to come up with their own stories and scenarios for their little friends. They arebeautiful, natural toys that allow for educational, fun play.
Being hand-finished from natural materials, each of Barka Arts' beautiful offerings is unique, with slightly different patterns, paint finishes, shaping, wood grain, texture, and occasional wood knots showing.
