Ashanti Doll

These wooden figurines were worn by pregnant women, tucked in their wrap-around skirts, in order to ensure they would give birth to a beautiful and healthy baby.

Despite their very simplified design, a disk for the head, a cylinder for the body, crossed by a line for the arms, these figurines were sometimes decorated with belts, necklaces or pendant earrings, in fine multicoloured beads.

The back of the head was engraved with geometric signs.

Reproduction in hand patinated resin
