The Tunantada is a tradition in Junin. Every January 20th, there is a festival in which people remember, satirically, how centuries ago Spaniards came to found the town. That day, the viceroy came with an Argentinian man who sold donkeys, a Bolivian man who sold medicinal herbs, and his court, which ranged from white followers to Andean slaves.

Perhaps the inhabitants found funny all the pomposity that came along with the viceroy. Soon after, they recreated the scene in the satirical dance that we now call the Tunantada. Once established, it was appointed for every January 20th, day of the patron of the town.

This is one of the dresses women wear those days. It is handmade, adorned with embroidery, and includes a hat. During the Tunantada, women are after the viceroy, and one of them becomes his lover.

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.
