Details

Francis Agbete finds inspiration in the wisdom and artistry of the Adinkra symbols of the Ashanti people. Originally credited to Nana Kofi Adinkra, these legendary symbols revolve around several themes with a rich proverbial content. For the Asante people, proverbs are regarded as a mark of wisdom. Hand-carved of sese wood by Agbete, the symbols on this long wall adornment include, starting at the top: Mmusuyidee or "that which removes ill luck," which stands for good fortune and sanctity followed by the most widely known symbol, Gye Nyame, hailing God's supremacy. Next is Sankofa, which encourages to learn from the past, Nkontim or queen’s servant, symbolizing loyalty and service, and the fifth is Akofena, the sword of war, represents courage and valor.

Includes galvanized steel hooks for hanging.
