Appearing at the bottom of the composition,Bi-Nka-Bi stands for justice. It means that no one should outrage or provoke another and exhorts fair play, unity and avoidance of strife. Above, Denkyem is an animal sign that represents adaptability. Abbam creates the image by patiently gluing cotton thread to a card stock base.
