In the traditional style of akuaba fertility dolls, this sculpture is created by Ghanaian artisan Aminu Ibrahim. He hand-carves the figure of sese wood and gives it an antiqued brown finish. Jewelry made of recycled glass beads decorates the sculpture, while an antiqued mirror adorns its square chest.

I have several chiwara pieces and I love them all for their uniqueness, however, this is the first contemporary style piece that purchased and I love it. The details with the metal was a surprise. I guess I Just didn?t pay much attention to the description when ordering. But it is exquisitely detailed. Thank you for allowing me to display your work!
- Great for a smaller space or bundle with other pieces
