Details

This Ghanaian sculpture is handcrafted of local sese wood in the style of traditional fertility dolls. Designed by Emmanuel Opoku Asante, the fertility doll depicts a woman of the Ashanti tribe wearing beaded jewelry of recycled glass. Marks on the sculpture's cheeks reflect scarification practices. According to cultural traditions, fertility dolls like these were given to women who were unable to bear children. A distressed beige finish completes this characteristic home accessory.

"Looks better on the picture."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

It is a nice mask, but it looks much simpler and less impressive as you pull it out of the box. Having said that, it is very nice to accompany other masks on your wall. I think it is a good complement to the Ancestors Spirit Mask.

Best Uses

  • Great for your studio or office
  • I would put it with other masks, if you have several ones
