The AKUA' BA African figurine doll is a traditional remedy in Ghanaian figurine culture for infertility. It is believed that the inability to give birth is an indication of ill health or possibly witchcraft. The figurine doll, unlike Western figurine dolls, is considered a surrogate baby. It is wrapped in cloth and carried on a woman's back, mimicking the actions of a real baby. The doll is nursed and put to bed in the same way a real child would be. It is believed that the doll is a charm that appeals to the fertility gods for good luck and the gift of a real child. For her infertility issue, Akua once sought the help of a traditional priest, as the legend goes.
