According to African legend, the owner of a fertility doll will give birth to a beautiful child of 24 inches tall. In Ghana and in most parts of Africa, fertility dolls represent youth and fertility. Akua'maa (fertility dolls) are carved wooden figures that are believed to induce pregnancy and ensure safe delivery at birth. The fertility doll is given to a tribal woman who is wanting to become pregnant.



If you look closely at the structure of a fertility doll you will notice a distinct similarity to the Ankh, an ancient Egyptian or Kamitic symbol of life. It has a huge round head, and it is shaped like a cross. The head is symbolic of the feminine womb



The body of the fertility doll is shaped  like a cross and is similar to a Kamitic symbol known as the Djed, which according to legend is the backbone of the God Ausar (Osins). Spiritual teachings of ancient Egypt, Ausar possesses great power, as his emotions and thoughts are stable and unwavering.



These figures can be thought of as good luck totems in the home.
