African Doll Fertility Burkina Faso (Mali) Mossi Wood Fertility Doll

$135.00

This is a fabulous Mossi Wood Fertility Doll from Burkina Faso (Mali) very old, carried to ensure fertility. This doll is a traditional wooden figurine made from one piece of wood standing on a broader base. The doll displays the characteristics of an adult woman, with suggestions of facial features and elaborate hairstyles, and usually with mature female breasts that represent the fulfillment of motherhood. Scarification [scarring] patterns on the body that traditionally mark passage to adulthood are also represented by carved patterns. Mossi dolls are typically carved by male blacksmiths and are given to girls for play. The child calls it biiga ("child"), and carries the doll about with her, tucking it into the waistband of her skirt, and pretends to feed, wash and groom it. Mossi dolls are also the focus of rituals associated with motherhood. This is a wonderful piece of art for your home or that someone special.
