Brilliant Colorful String Art - SANKOFA Gold
In African culture, where societies developed without reliance on the written word, iconography and imagery were essential tools for expressing and transmitting history, culture, and values. Symbols and images continue to carry far greater weight than in Western societies. The African artists' imagery offers us a direct path to understanding aspects of African culture.
RED, BLACK & GOLD SANKOFA BIRD: Sankofa. The Akan symbol of reclamation. "Reach back and get something of value, left behind" is a loose translation. There is nothing small about reconnecting with your past. Pieces were imported from Ghana and remain in a protective plastic cover, ready for framing. (approx. 11 1/4"h x 15 1/4"w).
