This ceramic doll is made by a family in Tonala, Mexico.

Najaco dolls were founded in Tonalá, Jalisco in 1992. At the beginning, the family was looking for a way to depict Mexican people's daily chores (especially women) while in their typical outfits.
Each figurine shows a figurine either going to cut nopals, a seller of apples, vegetables, flowers, birds, the shepherd or the traditional pulquero, thus showing the beauty of the streets of a town.
In short, typical women or men doing their chores from the past and even now. Each doll is a model of Mexican woman's beauty.
This folk art is full of colored detail. Each doll is molded, afterward each figurine is hand painted by artisans.
Please note: these figurines are individually hand made & painted and will have slight variations one to another.
