These figures are fertility dolls and it is believed that keeping them in the house will increase a woman's fertility. They represent the Ashanti image of the high foreheaded ideal beautiful child. Smaller versions are carried by women, tucked into their cloths, both to insure fertility and the birth of a beautiful baby. If a woman gives birth to a girl, she might also keep one of these figures to symbolize a desire for her next child to be a male.
