Adinkra Symbol Wall Plaque - Kwatakye Atiko
ADINKRA symbols express important themes reflecting the history, beliefs and philosophy of the Akan people of West Africa. They carry a wealth of proverbial meaning, and because proverbs continue to play an important role in African culture, their use is considered to be a sign of wisdom.
Carved wooden ADINKRA symbols mounted on a plastic background in a wooden frame. Each unique piece brings you 6 symbols of African knowledge, as meaningful today as they were for the growth of West African societies hundreds of years ago. Symbol explanations are on the back of each plaque. (approx. 26 1/2" x 7 1/4" x 3/4")
