Product Description

The Asante (Ashanti) believe that the children gain their “ntoro” (spirit) from their father and clan membership from their mothers’ blood, “mogya”. In turn, a female childs’ entire life, was a preparation for motherhood. Even now, the “Akua’ba” (fertility doll) of the Akan (ancestors  of the Asante) and Asante are used by young women hoping for a child. Legend has it that a woman who has worn one of these dolls, will give birth to a beautiful child. Bodily aesthetic beauty to the Asante is a long neck, a high forehead and a small mouth. Traditionally, the user of the Asante doll would have it prayed over, strap it to her back, carry it the way she would a real child and generally tend to the doll as if it had life. The large size dolls were and still are placed in the home. They serve as totems of fertility and good fortune for the household. Detailing and scarification will vary from doll to doll.

"Dear Kim,

I purchased an Ashanti Fertility doll three years ago from your website for a friend of mine who was having trouble having a child. Since then, she has had a son and twin daughters. I have had twins (a boy and a girl) all with the doll by their side. I just wanted to let you know of the legend of our doll. Thank you for your help."
