Dolls

Dolls in their various shapes and forms are found across the African Continent. As a rule they are created for girls to play with and for young women who wish to ensure their fertility. Additionally their are also ibejis which is used as a container for the soul of a dead twin. The Yoruba believe that the souls of twins are connected to each other and the a dead twin must be looked after exactly like a living child in that it is fed, bathed and spoken to. Often dolls are handed down from mother to daughter and can even be found on family shrines.
