Goddess sculpture - Akuba (Africa c 1900 c.e.) - Product Image

Goddess sculpture - Akuba (Africa c 1900 c.e.)

These goddess sculptures are reproductions of original pieces excavatged in various parts of the world.
The clay pieces are sagger fired, rendering the caly vitrified (in a fired state) but leaving it porous, thus making it perfect for annointing with your favorite essential oil. The clay will hold the oil and slowly diffuse the scent over a period of time.

Akuba - Akua'maa are beautiful wooden lunar figures that the Asante women of Ghana traditionally use to ensure the countinuite of their matriliny, or descent through the female line. Akua'ba literally means "Akua's child", from the story of a woman named Akua who, by carrying one of these figures became pregnant and gave birth to a healthy, beautiful daughter. These sculptures are washed, dreassed, adorned with beads, nursed and carried on the backs of women as an act of magic - that is, an act of encouraging change through thoughts and symbolic action.
These images resemble the shape of the ankh, the ancient Egyptian symbol for life which is related to our contemporary symbol for woman.
