Bouquet of flowers constructed from found material, including wool and sweet packages. It was made by a seven year old girl from the Ikenwen village, in 2005, and was designed to be used in a play (doll's) house.

It is part of a group of traditional toys collected in the Anti-Atlas area of Morocco by Belgium Socio-cultural Anthropologist Jean-Pierre Rossie, during the period 2005-2011.
