The Sankofa bird is an Adinkra symbol of the Akan people of Ghana that represents the importance of learning from the past to ensure a strong future. Artisan Kwasi George breathes life into the symbology with this eye-catching wood statuette, featuring the traditional bird reaching for the egg on its back. Kwasi paints the eye and beak of the bird in red, before using local clay to add an attractive, distressed look to the statuette. The delightful Sankofa bird stands firmly on a wood stand decorated with an aluminum plate design.
