Dolls in African art.

It's an engagement fali doll. A particular feature, the body is wide and is surmounted by two heads.
The whole piece is covered with beads of various colors and shapes. The small arms are made up of cauris while the heads wear cord hair.
This type of fetish African doll was carried like a child, behind the back of the young woman. The statuette is a guarantee of marriage and hope to start a family. The size and weight of the doll reinforce the bride's commitment.
The Fali are a people settled in northern Cameroon especially on the hills at the foot of Mount Tinguelin. They are also found in Nigeria and Chad.
