Akua’ba in Blue – Akua’ba doll art print
Akua’ba in Blue is a contemporary illustration inspired by the African Akua’ba doll, a tradition of Akan, Ghana.
The Akua'ba doll is an integral part of Ghanaian fertility folklore. Akua'ba is a wooden doll fabricated to represent the connection between motherhood and childbirth. Ghanaian Akan tradition and folklore suggest that by focusing on an akua'ba wooden doll as if it were a real child, a psychological state of mind would develop in mothers-to-be. This state of mind, it is believed, would improve chances for early pregnancy and eventual birth of a healthy baby.
