Noush Projects - Zama Mermaid

By Noush


Exquisitely crafted sculptural African 'Doll' of hand-painted cast resin. 

Noush Projects is small bespoke artisan studio located in Durban, South Africa owned and operated by Dutch artist, Manoushka Kraal.  The inspiration for the Noush Dolls came from the iconic 1950's West African Clonette Dolls. Many considered them little angels that would look out for your loved ones and guide them through life.  Noush Dolls were created in that same spirit.

Zama is one of three Mermaids and the only Noush Doll that can be found lying down, and the only one we currently offer who cradles a cat.  Zama is available in all black or white with a gold cat.

Each Noush Doll comes with a certificate of authenticity stating the name and production date.

As Noush Dolls are painted and finished by hand, it is possible for them to be ordered in a variety of different styles. If you are interested in customizing piece, please contact us for details.
