Akuaba

£345

A twist on a traditional West African and western pop culture iconography. Akuaba is the name given to an Akan fertility doll. Akuaba translates to “Akua’s child” in English. A woman desperately hoping to conceive would carry a wooden doll with her as she would a small child. This painting crosses traditional expectations of womanhood with western popular culture expectations of womanhood.
