    Story Behind the Art:

    Juliana Akandas became interested in Ghanaian carvings while working as a secretary, so she learned woodcarving. 'My favorite is the Akuaba doll. For the Akan people, the doll represents fertility. When given this doll, any woman who cannot have babies is believed likely to get pregnant. You can imagine the joy a child brings to such a woman. The doll is also a symbol of twins, and each receives an Akuaba so that in case one should die, the doll is a remembrance of the dead twin,' she says.
