Traditional Adinkra symbols of Ghana inspire this captivating painting by Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboah. The upper image represents sankofa, meaning "go back to your roots," a message conveyed through the form of a bird with its head tilted backwards. Below, the impressive Gye Nyame symbol appears, its rotating movements understood as "I fear none except God." A colorful kente cloth vision for any collection.

Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboah describes his process, "First and foremost, I assemble my working tools, after which I sketch images on the calico cloth. With the sketches done, I sprinkle red and green oil paints on the calico cloth to give it a simple colorful background. I then cut out particular places I intend to replace with kente, which are later glued together. Afterwards, I dry and frame my collage work."

I just received The Lost Fishermen and I love it. This artwork arrived quickly to the United States and looks just like the photo online. It is beautiful up close and from a distance, and draws lots of attention from visitors. Definitely worth the purchase.

Love the artwork Good Akan Mother. It arrived quickly to the United States and looks just like the picture online. I also like that it is signed by the artist. I will definitely be investing in a glass frame to protect this beautiful work!
