The African Akan ethnic group mainly occupies Ghana. Their extremely rich and structured society made them long-standing trading partners with the Portuguese. The wealth and prosperity of Akan society are reflected in the high degree of refinement found in their tribal art objects: jewelry, amulets, statues, seats, combs, weights for weighing gold, etc.
Like all Ghanaian peoples, the Akan were influenced by the Ashanti people, who traveled and spread their artistic traditions across Ghana.
Finally, motherhood and fertility being significant values for the Akan, women occupied a crucial place in society. So much so that a matrilineal system developed. This explains their significant representation in African Akan statuary.
