K. Baka combines blue and green to create a beautiful batik scarf with African style. On each end is an adinkra symbol known as nkonsonkonson, meaning "chain link" in the Akan language. It conveys the concept of connection and cooperation. Each person is a link and their unity forms a chain.

"Pretty but too short"
The picture is deceptive. The scarf is as wide as my hand and goes around my neck to my chest. I can't loop it ...its so short. Very disappointing. Art work is pretty but it would make a better hot pad or placemate.
