Little Fali Fetish related to an individual or a house
Fetishes like this one are generally related to fertility and sometimes to protection.
Their craftsmanship depends on the needs expressed by the soothsayer and on the people for which the protection is destined.
Hence, there are similar ones but differently crafted.
This African fetish can be worn on a belt or placed in the marital bed to favour fecundation.
The Fali mainly live in the north of Cameroon, in the region of Garoua.
