© AP6.0 Handmade African Asante Fertility Doll Sculpture approximately 5 x 2 x 12 inches This pretty figure is an Ashanti (also spelled Asante) fertility doll, used to bring a woman who owns one a beautiful child. The woman will often carry and care for the doll as if it is a real child. Upon the realization of her dream, the birth of a child, the doll is placed in a revered position in the family shrine. We can't promise you children, but this piece is itself a lovely addition to an African collection or a tribal themed decor. It has been hand carved by an Ashanti sculptor out of Sesse wood, and then adorned with various items. The name "Akua Ba" literally means "Wednesday born baby girl." It denotes youth and fertility.
