The Ewe of Ghana and Togo considered twins and triplets to be a sign of good fortune and blessings. The Ewe carved their Venavi figures from soft, light-coloured wood, with a simple and naturalistic style. Only the coiffure and feet are pigmented. The figures are adorned with beaded necklaces and skirts.
