Origin[edit | edit source]

In 1994, Edward Muier was looking for artifacts bizarre enough to add to his Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum. Traveling to a small village on the Ivory Coast he found a curio shop which had the statues. Standing at five feet tall, a male and female, carved from solid ebony by a tribe called the Baule. A village shaman had used a ritual to bless it so that the women in his village would be blessed with fertility.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When touched at the same time increases a female's fertility. Touching a single one lowers a person’s promiscuity and sexual appetite.

Collection[edit | edit source]

Believing they were interesting enough Muier put them in the museum. Agents were alerted when several females in the town became pregnant within a short time including all the female employees of the museum.
