Among the Ashanti people in Ghana, women hoping for offspring carry these Akuaba dolls in their clothes. These fertility dolls have a large, round, flat head that is reminiscent of its origin as a representation of the moon goddess, which is associated with fertility. Once the Akuaba figure has fulfilled its purpose, the mother of the desired child places it on her domestic altar, where it is worshipped in a shrine, or she passes it on to the next generation.
An Ashanti doll can give your Tribal Chic look an instant upgrade and add a feminine element to an otherwise quite strong decor style. They also work wonderfully in a neutral palette Boho scheme.
