Shaped like a woman's torso, this wall sculpture is inspired by the traditions of the Mende people in Sierra Leone. This sculpture is usually given to women upon their wedding day to assure she'll be able to conceive. Ghana's Salihu Ibrahim carves the sese wood replica by hand to resemble a woman’s pregnant midriff. Ibrahim adorns the wall sculpture with a flower around the navel and treats it with clay to achieve an antique finish.
