Venavi are used for protection of survival after the death of a twin. Some state they are also used as children’s dolls and fertility dolls.  Carved from the kapok tree, Venavi are monochrome except for their hairstyle and feet.  Dolls with broken limbs are considered more powerful, as they ensure that children would be born healthy.
