Yoruba Fertility Fetish Doll (N° 18301)

Set on two thin legs apart from the width of the pelvis, this feminine figure, reduced, has amazing protruding and asymmetrical pupils giving it the appearance of an insect or even a small animal. Stretched eyebrows largely overlook the eye, while the nose and mouth are carefully sculpted into the extremity of the chin. The tubular neck extends from two tiny breasts supported by the character's hands. It is a fetish for individual use from Akpro-Missérété. Smoothed by a regular grip, the patina has adopted an orange-brown hue. Long desication cracks.
Vingt-five million Yoruba are scattered between Nigeria, Benin, and Togo. Among the broad pantheon Yoruba, the god named Ogun god of iron and war, was also that of blacksmiths and sculptors. The creator Olodumare reigns over four hundred orisha and spirits of nature, living in streams and forests. They are honored in festive rites featuring various masks and ritual objects.
