Details

Wrought in brilliant red, the Atiko Gyawu symbol swirls in exquisite symmetry. It is said to be inspired by the shaved head of Gyawu, a Bantama king of the Ashanti people who escaped imprisonment. Atiko refers to the back of the monarch's head. It is a symbol of high social standing. Randy Abeka Abbam creates the bright image by patiently gluing cotton thread to a card stock base. Ghanaian Adinkra symbols such as this one represent popular sayings.

Cotton thread on card stock, the work arrives in a frame of tweneboa wood.

I absolutely love the string art that I received the other day. You have a great talent and I wish you well in school and also on your exhibitions. I plan to buy some more of your beautiful art work.

Purchased the thread-work, ""in harmony"". It was shipped to my office and when I showed it to my co-workers, many wanted to buy it right on the spot. Naturally I said no! It is now prominently displayed in my entrance hallway and never fails to get a comment. Especially when guests realize it is thread-work!
