The best-known ethnic group in African art from Ghana, the Ashanti people have spread their rites and artistic traditions throughout the country, but also in regions of Togo and the Ivory Coast.
The Ashanti rites are distinguished by the absence of masks and the reduced number of statuettes. Some Ashanti African statues are dedicated to protection against illness and spells. While the others are maternity hospitals named Esi Mansa. Furthermore, the family and fertility occupy a central place in Ashanti culture. We can see this through other works such as their Akua'ba (female dolls to combat female sterility).
