"These dolls have been around since time in memorial. They help you have realistic expectations for yourself," says Evelyn Kafui Ahianyo of her inspiration. She creates the elegant design of this fertility doll sculpture, which she names "Elavanyo," meaning "it shall be well with you" in the Ewe a dialect spoken by the Anlo tribe of Ghana in the Volta region. The lean sculpture is carved by hand featuring outspread hands and an ornately embossed aluminum headdress.
