Fertility bone doll from the Fali people of Cameroon.

Metapodial bones from ruminants, e.g. antelopes or goats, were already found in the Iron Age, in children’s and women’s graves in the Congo. Based on their natural shape, resembling human figures, it was assumed that they represented, already at that time, dolls and/or fertility figures.
