Dolls that feature traditional dresses are less popular, so this could be a unique gift for any woman, regardless of her age. If she is a girl, you can show her a bit of Peru and tell her the story of this tradition. If she is a grown woman, she will be glad to receive a traditional gift as present, specially after you tell her the story of the Tunantada.

The Tunantada dance is a tradition in Junin, a region in the central Peruvian Andes mountains. Every 20th of January, people gather in a festival to remember how Spaniards came a few centuries ago to found the city. Mind, it is not a respectful ceremony. It is a satirical dance! That day, the viceroy came in person with his court of servants, a bunch of native slaves, an Argentinian man who sold donkeys and a Bolivian man who sold medicinal herbs. All the scene is recreated during the Tunantada.

This is one of the dresses women wear that days. Both the original and this one are handmade and adorned with embroidery. The headdress is a modern addition to the original look.

This doll could be a nice ornament for your centre table. We suggest taking a look at the Chuto dancer so you can get a full set of Peruvian dolls.
