Traditional Ghanaian Adinkra symbols cover this captivating throne ottoman by Abdul Karim Star. The central image represents sankofa, meaning "go back to your roots," a message conveyed through the form of a bird with its head tilted backwards.
On either side, sweeping curves symbolize sharp blades of blue steel, the Adinkra symbol known as Akofena. It means "Sword of Honor;" the imagery comes from crossed swords used for generations on the heraldic shields of Ghana. Thus the symbol represents the legitimate authority of the state.
