Ashanti Statue (N° 23846)

For the Ashanti and the Fantis of Ghana, the Akuaba (plural Akua'mma) doll statuettes are amulets used by women to promote fertility. Mostly stylized in appearance, this copy offers a sleek geometric appearance. A mark of beauty, the often ringed neck also symbolizes prosperity.
Black satin patina, abrasions.
Carried on the backs of women, these statues are also accompanied by various rites, such as the ingestion of a potion, or the placing of the object on the family altar. After the birth of the child, the sculpture is used as a toy, and sometimes still offered to the healer in order to witness its effectiveness. Locally abraded glossy black patina.
