Beautiful Handcrafted Piece
This African fertility doll was beautifully handcrafted. This is not my first time purchasing from Novica, but each time I have been very pleased with all products. Fast shipping and quality items. I would highly recommend purchasing this item and shopping with Novoca.
A beautiful set
I bought the twin dolls as a gift for my daughter who is trying to have a baby. She loves them and has already displayed them on her shelf. I?ll let you know if they worked!

Aztec Fertility Goddess Ceramic Replica Sculpture, "Mayahuel Fertility Goddess"$349.99
"Mayahuel was said to have over 400 breasts, that's why the Mexica gods transformed her into a plant. She is usually portrayed with full breasts and opened legs, as if giving birth," say artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association as they explain the rich symbolism of this ceramic sculpture. A piece inspired by the Laud Codex (1325-1521), this sculpture portrays Mayahuel as a mother as well as goddess of fertility who fed her children with the fermented juice of the maguey - known as pulque.
African Artisan Crafted Wood Fertility Doll from Ghana, "Ashanti Fertility Doll V"$94.99
Fertility dolls such as this one by Ghanaian artisan Emmanuel Opoku Asante were traditionally given to Ashanti women who were unable to conceive. The artisan carves the figure by hand from native sese wood and adds recycled glass bead jewelry.
Blue Fertility Doll Wood and Cotton Collectible Sculpture, "Akuaba of the Ashanti II"$79.99
Ghanaian artisan Abdulai Osman Adam reinterprets tradition with an original version of the legendary Akuaba, the fertility doll of the Ashanti people. According to legend, there once was a woman who couldn't conceive, so the village priest told her to craft a doll, dress it and look after it as she would a child. Soon she'd have a child of her own. Custom persists and many women prepare their own Akuaba doll, and when the child is born, Akuaba is given as the baby's first toy. Adam carves this sese wood sculpture by hand, portraying her in blue and sitting on a throne. He adorns her elaborate headdress with African wax prints in cotton.
