Additional Information: Among the Akan childbearing is an important responsibility of women who are considered to have not fulfilled their purpose on earth unless they have had children and inasmuch as the Akan are a matrilineal society girl babies are preferred. The tradition of how akuaba came to be is based upon the story of a childless woman named Akua who went to her local shrine to consult with the priest of her desire to have a child. The priest advised her to have a small figure carved and to treat it as she would a real child carrying it in a cloth on her back.

Namji Namchi or Matakam Iron Fertility Doll Cameroon African Art

Namji Namchi or Matakam Iron Fertility Doll Cameroon

Additional Information: A fertility doll from Cameroon that fits forms from two different tribes: the Namchi and the Matakam.  The shape of the doll is decidedly Namchi, with arms bent down and a small head with rounded legs.  But the materials suggest Matakam, with cloth wrapping and iron skeleton.   Namchi dolls-Among the Namchi people of Cameroon, unadorned dolls made by blacksmiths are played with by young children. When beads, bells, coins, and other ornaments are added, however, the doll becomes a surrogate baby for a woman who was having difficulty getting pregnant. The woman treats the figure like a baby, feeding it and carrying it on her back. (See "ISN'T S/HE A DOLL-PLAY AND RITUAL IN AFRICAN SCULPTURE" by Cameron, published by the Fowler Museum-UCLA.)

Willow Tree Inquisitive Child, Sculpted Hand-Painted Figure

Willow Tree Inquisitive Child, Sculpted Hand-Painted

TITLE: Inquisitive Child SENTIMENT: ...nurtured by your loving care GIFT-GIVING SUGGESTIONS: Child figures work well together in groupings that reflect your family relationships. Create a Family Grouping by positioning two (or three or more) figures so that they appear to be interacting, turned toward one another, touching. Like families do. Almost as if you’ve captured a moment in time. Willow Tree is a reminder of someone we want to keep close, or a memory we want to touch. Hand-carved figures reveal their expression through body gestures only... a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. Since 1999, American artist Susan Lordi has worked in partnership with DEMDACO to produce, market and distribute Willow Tree , her line of carved figurative sculpture. From her studio in Kansas City, Lordi hand carves the original of each figure. This piece is cast from Lordi's original and painted by hand. Enclosed inside each fitted packaging box is a gift-giving card with piece title and sentiment on it. Each piece is intended to be open to interpretation from the viewer. "Willow Tree isn't so much about the tangible piece. It represents an emotion or it marks a memory." -Susan Lordi Ready to display on a shelf, table or mantel. To clean, dust with soft brush or cloth...

African Dolls: For Play and for Magic (English and French Edition)

African Dolls: For Play and for Magic (English

This is fascinating book on African Dolls for Play and for Magic--a theme which has long been neglected. As playthings, the use of dolls is universal. In Africa however, they are used not only in the secular world, but also in meeting religious and ritual needs. Their sacred and profane functions overlap and co-exist. The toy dolls are ordinary objects for girl's play. Magical dolls clearly are not. The original intended theme of this publication was to be "the best of African dolls"--but the subject would have been subjective, aesthetic criteria. The idea was changed for three reasons: (1) What we in the west consider the best is not necessarily seen as the best by Africans. (2) by focusing this publication in that way, we would have lost an opportunity to appreciate the extraordinary variations which occur in their shape, function and materials. (3) We did not wish by omission to neglect - the virtuosity, ingenuity and remarkable flexibility which characterize African creative activities. The resulting book touches upon the origins and universality of dolls and provides a view of their role and value to African societies driven and rooted in fertility. This book helps clarify the dolls (and where applicable figurines), social value. There are 35 countries from over 80 ethnic gr...
