Carved by hand, this exquisite yida (comb) is adorned with a fertility figure. Victor Yao Delanyo carves the original piece from seasoned sese wood and adds copper and aluminum details. The figure is named Akuvi, which is a name given to by Ghana's Ewe people to girls born on a Wednesday. They believe that such figures as this doll possess the potent power of fertility and often present them to girls born into the family.

My ""Dog of the Spirit World"" carving is a beautifully crafted piece, it's one of my favorite Novica purchases. I was worried about the long ears and tail surviving the journey from Africa to Texas but it was so carefully packed I think it could have survived a trip to the moon!
