African Figurine in wood representing a Maternity from the Ashanti/Akan ethnic group of Ghana.
Very lovely figurine holding a child in the arms, symbol of fecundity. Female healers performed rites to enable women having trouble procreating, to become mothers. The fear of bad curses which could have been cast by bad intentioned neighbours or enemies, was widespread; they fear that evil persons seek to complicate their lives regarding health, successful hunting and good crops.
The rings around the neck are representative of Akan ethnic groups.
There is a crack on the right arm, ancient traces of xylophagous animals.
