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.
