Ewe doll--The Ewe are related to the Ashante people, and are found in Ghana and Togo. One of these dolls can be seen on the cover of ISN'T S/HE A DOLL, PLAY AND RITUAL IN AFRICAN SCULPTURE, by Cameron, published by the Fowler Museum of African Art, UCLA. The Ewe live in Ghana and Togo. These dolls have different uses. They are twin dolls, like the ibeji of the Yoruba. They are also used as children's dolls, fertility dolls, and worn under the skirts of young women.They are sometimes dressed or beaded. (see pictures in Cameron book.)
