Details

This trendy pair of earrings comes from the creative mind of designer Ali Mohammed. Hand carved from ebony wood, each earring features an adinkra symbol called akoko nan, which is an Akan term for "hen's feet". The proverb that pairs with this symbol reads Akoko nan tia ba, na ennkum no, which means "The hen treads upon its chicks, but it does not intend to kill them." The hen's feet represents parental protection and tenderness, they hang from brass hooks.

"A beautiful addition to our collection"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The photo drew my wife and I in. We collect unique Santa s and were looking for an Asian Santa — still an if anyone has a suggestion — when we saw Ali s ‘Father Christmas. We bought it and hoped the piece would be as special as the photo promised . It was. It s a beautiful piece that will remain in our family forever. Love it!
