Fertility doll from the Namji people of Cameroon. The doll represents the child desired by everyone, and is at the same time a “women’s fetish doll” which has to ensure their fecundity.
Therefore, it has the power to fulfill a woman’s desire of giving birth.
It is also said that childless or milk-less women, touch or squeeze the dolls that fulfilled women’s desires so that their wishes become true.
Since the birth of a child has a significant incidence on the status of a couple, psychological blocks occur.
In fact, a woman without children is considered as an imperfect creature.
The doll is an artificial placebo enabling to unblock the situation.
Good condition with a colorful patina.
