REF 200116/3626 / AD1 / 6045

This stylized figurine is the work of Ashanti sculptors.


These dolls, called AKUABA, were often made of wood measuring 20 to 40 cm

and depicted an elongated body bearing a long disc-shaped head.

The neck appears to be made up of several rings.

When an Akan woman was sterile or just wanted a child,

she procured a statuette fashioned by priests which enabled her to conceive.


When the woman gave birth, she had to bring her back to the sanctuary to serve again.

If the child died, the woman would remember the doll.



This pendant is made of pewter (nickel free),
