A West African doll refers to a doll that originates from the countries and cultures of West Africa. West Africa is known for its rich and diverse cultural heritage, which is often represented in various forms of art, including dolls.

West African dolls come in different styles and materials, reflecting the traditions and aesthetics of the specific regions they originate from. They can be made from various materials such as wood, clay, fabric, or even recycled materials. These dolls are often handmade and feature intricate details that showcase the craftsmanship and cultural significance of the region.

These dolls may be used for different purposes. In some cultures, they serve as toys for children, while in others, they have ceremonial or symbolic value. They can also be used as educational tools to teach children about their cultural heritage and traditional values.

One notable type of West African doll is the "Anoma" doll, which originates from Ghana. Anoma dolls are made from clay and are known for their elongated bodies and decorative markings. They are traditionally given to young girls as playthings and to promote fertility and good luck.

Another example is the "Ndebele doll" from the Ndebele people of South Africa. These dolls are crafted from fabric and are characterized by their colorful geometric patterns. They are often used as a form of communication and storytelling within the community.

It's important to note that West Africa is a diverse region with numerous cultures, each with its own unique doll-making traditions. The specific characteristics and meanings of West African dolls can vary significantly depending on the country, ethnic group, and cultural context
