Fanti are one of the peoples generally thought to not possess a masquerading tradition. The Fanti use acua'ba dolls, which differ from those of the Asante, their northern neighbors. As this is a matrilineal society, the acua'ba are female. They are used as fertility figurines in shrines or worn by women either to induce conception or, during pregnancy, to assure the birth of a beautiful child, preferably, a daughter. 

These combs elaborately carved and decorated with acua'ba doll, are worn as hair ornaments. They are great as decorative wall hangings.
