Some believe that the dolls originated with the Taíno people, who were the indigenous people of the Dominican Republic before the arrival of the Spanish. The Taíno people believed that spirit beings inhabited objects in the natural world, and they would carve human faces into tree stumps and rocks as a way of honoring these spirits.

The tradition of making no face dolls continues today, and they can be found for sale in markets and shops all over the Dominican Republic. If you’re looking for a unique souvenir to bring home from your travels, be sure to pick up a no face doll!
