Couple from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Gran Canaria is another of the big Canary islands, and Las Palmas is the capital.

Pressed felt heads and bodies. Felt hat. The costume is very realistic and precise, even for underwear.

These dolls were made by a granny from Tenerife, from la Oroteva. Many of these couples, dressed in costumes from every part of the Canary Islands, can be found in the 'Oficio de Turismo' in la Oroteva. Unfortunately, they cannot be purchased.

I found this couple in Fuerteventura, in a tourists shop. They were covered with dirt.

Height: 50 cm (20")
