Pvpa - Roman Doll

The first dolls that we know of were found in Egypt. They were very simple dolls made of rag. At any time they have been a highly appreciated toy among children since thanks to them, both boys and girls learn by imitating adults to dress them, comb their hair, wash them, etc.

The Greeks also had their own dolls and they were already beginning to be made of Terracotta, becoming increasingly sophisticated.

In ancient Rome, fully articulated Pvpae were manufactured, as in the case of this reproduction. The materials were diverse and, as always, depended on the status of each child. They were made of wood, ivory, bone or even amber. Most likely, they also continued to make rag dolls, but unfortunately none have survived. The Roman dolls were perfectly detailed. The Pvpae followed the hairstyle trends of each era, which really helped us classify them by era.

Tarragona, formerly known as Tarraco, was a crucial city in the Roman Empire and has left an invaluable cultural legacy.

This exceptional find transports us to daily life in Roman times and shows us how children of that time also delighted in endearing toys.

Without a doubt, a highly appreciated Pvpa or Roman doll for all lovers of the Roman world and collectors of ancient dolls.
