Old woven dolls by weavers of the Embera tribe. These gorda muneca (or fat dolls) each have secret chambers that open up like a secret chamber. The gordas also have long braided purse strings that could around the back. These dolls are an old style traditional art, and there are only 4 in the collection.
This woven doll has a detailed small face, with delicate woven eyes, nose and mouth, and circular white ears. He seems to have a black head of hair. His backside flares out like a chicken, revealing a hidden storage area. The dolls are created out of bundles of shredded palm, then woven together using colored palm dyed with natural vegetal dyes.
