      the art of Adinkra

      Adinkra are symbols that express the culture and beliefs of the Asante people of Ghana. Dating back over 200 years, each symbol represents a meaningful proverb or personal quality. These elegant hieroglyphs have long been used to adorn fabric and decorative objects. A key print in this collection draws on Abode Santann, which depicts the all-seeing eye of the divine and omnipresent creator. We are also inspired by the Akua Ba figurine, a woman-like form that embodies feminine energy and fertility, to create a new take on Adinkra.
