Details

The Sankofa Anoma symbol graces this beautiful mini-djembe by Ernestina Oppong Asante. An Adinkra symbol communicating popular wisdom, it directs Africans to the roots and strengths of their beginnings and past. The bird turns its head and neck an almost impossible 180 degrees, because no strain is too hard for gathering bygone experiences and learning from them. The symbol is drawn from a proverb meaning "Go back to fetch it," inferring learning from the past in order to build for the future; it translates as "positive reversion and revival."

Carved from tweneboa wood, this beautiful percussion instrument is finished with mansion polish. Glass beads and brass plates further embellish it. The goatskin drumhead is affixed by iron rings wrapped in cotton, and a macramé cord can be slung over the shoulder. The djembe originated in Benin, where it is used during voodoo rites. It has been introduced into neighboring countries and is indispensable in contemporary reggae.

"masque correct, mais ......."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Masque correct, mais qui nest pas celui de la photo. La girafe est beaucoup plus fonc?e, mais le probl?me est surtout l?l?phant qui est dune couleur orange fluo, rien ? voir avec la photo, + la trompe et le front ne sont absolument pas sculpt?s, ils sont tout lisses.. Je vais devoir repeindre l?l?phant, car retourner le masque est trop contraignant, et aurait un co?t.

"Highest quality, unique, very functional"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ADORE this chair. I use it as my resting chair in my living room (Im tiny), yet also put it out in the garden during the summer (tho I would not leave it out in the sun or rain, of course) . Dont leave this beauty in your cart or someone will get it. Someone spent a great deal of time carefully carving and polishing this and it shows!! PLEASE, PLEASE make an adult version of this chair. I would certainly buy it.
