Mossi fertility doll Burkina Faso Wood H.: 39 cm. Fertility doll with a narrow face framed by two large ears, built around the nasal bridge that extends into a sagittal ridge. The head is connected to a long cylindrical neck from which the breasts stand out, treated schematically, like the rest of the body which tends towards abstraction. Doll used in fertility rites. Object that was generally little used as a late replacement, before integrating colonial circles as an object of knowledge or ornament.Consultant : Jean-Pierre LACOSTE
