Ghanaian artist Emmanuel Yeboah celebrates the rich cultural history of the Adinkra symbols. Originating from Ghana's Ashanti region, the Adinkra symbols are well-known throughout the country, each carrying a connotation of wisdom. Yeboah divides a piece of cotton calico into eight sections, each depicting a different symbol. Oil paints and ink are used for four of the symbols, and the other four are realized with colorful kente cloth cutouts.
