Handmade Wood Carving African Ashanti Doll Baby Statues~fertility/motherhood

You will get a set of two one boy and one girl African Ashanti dolls are a great gift for anyone with great taste! these are hand carved in kenya. A traditional tribal symbol of fertility and motherhood, hand made by South African artisans and carefully selected to enhance your exotic décor. These dolls represents fertility and youth. It is believed that the dolls can induce pregnancy and ensure safe delivery. these dolls are around 5 inx 2inx7/8 tall,made from native wood kenya.the total is just under 1lb for the pair. these are hane crafted so they vary a little in looks and color. One of the most distinctive wooden carvings of the Asante is the small doll with a flat oval-shaped head calledakua'ba(‘fertility doll'), a term which goes back to at least the 1920s. Akua'badolls are used by women who fear infertility. It is important for women to be successful in having children. Infertility, miscarriage or infant death are feared by women as they raise suspicions of witchcraft. A woman who has many children who survive is highly regarded and plays a role in girls' initiation rites. Among the Asante the line of descent passes through the female, so women are expected to bear female children to continue this line. If a woman does not conceive, she consults a herbalist or priest who supplies theakua'ba doll. Following consultations with the priest the woman carries the doll on her back, tied by a cloth in the position in which a real child is carried, until she becomes pregnant.
