- Story Behind the Art:
Juliana Akandas: 'I am happily married, with three children. After secondary school, I became interested in Ghanaian carvings. I got to know almost every carver in the country. In the Akan tribe of Ghana, the doll represents fertility. It is believed that, when given this doll, any woman who cannot have babies is likely to get pregnant. The Akuabaa doll is also a symbol of twins in Ghana, and they each receive an Akuabaa doll so that in case one should die, during the twin festival the doll is brought out in remembrance of the dead twin. I was so fascinated with all this that I decided to learn the trade. My products are unique; they have a meaning and they are backed by history.
