Collected by the late Emmanuel Victor Attram in 1962 from a village called Mankessim in central Ghana. Mankessim was the meeting place of the 77 chiefs of the Fante people. Part of this collection was auctioned by Sotheby's, New York, 1992.


Despite its appearance, the Fante doll below shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.
