A traditional adinkra symbol from Ghana inspires this beautiful walking stick by Evelyn Kafui Ahianyo. Carved by hand, it features the sankofa image. This is understood as "go back to your roots," a message conveyed through the form of a bird with its head tilted backward.

This is a lovely cane/walking stick. I didn't give it 5 stars because the colors are more vibrant in person than on my monitor and I preferred the more subdued colors.
