The Ewe people, who live in southern Togo and Ghana, make small statues and fabrics in wood with figurative motifs and symbols. These statues of Aklama, roughly carved in wood, represent protective spirits and are kept in their local shrines. Some experts think that they were used only as fertility dolls, others consider them as toys. Women keep these dolls under the mattress to ensure their marriage fertility. The dolls with broken arms or legs were considered more powerful.
This statuette was purchased in 1979 at the Totem-Meneghelli Gallery in Johannesburg.
Size with plexiglass base: height cm 20.
There are some breaks, scratches and cracks that prove its age and extended use, as well as the brown patina. The figurine has cracks and breaks visible in the photos.
