The Italian company was the first one to create and distribute this timeless piece. In 1968 Knoll bought the rights to Gavina’s holdings, including right to produce Marcel Breuer’s Wassily chair.

Tribal West African Asante Carved Wood Aku'aba Fertility Doll Figure...
...
An Asante wooden aku’aba fertility doll, published as part of the Ladislas Segy collection and dating to the early 20th century. The aku’aba of stylized form, a cylindrical torso with raised navel, breasts and distinctive scarification beneath the outstretched arms. With a flat dome-shaped head, coffee bean eyes, arching brows carved in relief and a small downturned mouth. The ringed neck is typical, representing rolls of fat and by extension beauty and prosperity. Aku’aba dolls are regarded as some of the most distinctive artifacts produced by the Asante peoples of central Ghana. If an Asante woman had difficulty conceiving she would consult a priest who would provide the doll, the aku’aba was then carried, fed, bathed, and otherwise cared for by the woman as if it was a living baby. In so doing, it was hoped she would eventually conceive. Aku’aba dolls are thus not only artworks, but objects with a beautiful, sometimes melancholy story behind them. Published: Segy, L. 1975 (4th ed.). African Sculpture Speaks. Pg. 184 fig. 199. New York: Da Capo Press. Provenance: Ex. collection of H. & L. Segy, inventory number 2429. Ladislas Segy collected between the 1950s-1980s and was the author of "African Sculpture Speaks," published in 1952 together with numerous books on Tribal Art....
