Africa | Fertility Doll ~ ham pilu  ~ from the Fali  people of Cameroon | Wood, leather, glass beads, cotton | When a young Fali man becomes betrothed, he makes a ham pilu and gives it to his fiancee, who wears it in a baby carrier on her back. The doll is a symbol of their marriage commitment and represents their future child. The man gives the doll the gender that he desires for his first-born. The woman cares for the figure until the child is born; then the doll is carefully stored away.
