An overview of a collection of African (fertility) dolls.

This private collection of African dolls, sometimes spontaneously decorated with beadwork, are witnesses of people's hopes and beliefs. The book is richly illustrated with overviews and detailed photographs of the objects and, apart from a description of their history, also gives the reader a personal account of collecting these dolls single-handedly over a period of 45 years.

About the Author
