  • More Info

  • 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.

    Graphic text below the image features and intertwined "mother" and "child", as well as the title "akua'ba".
