Adinkra symbols are from the Akan of Ghana. They denote African proverbs, parables & wisdom. Their meanings have transcended time yet adapted to cultural and social changes of modern society:
GYE NYAME has become an icon of all Adinkra, encapsulating the faith of an African people who see God’s involvement in every aspect of human life. It translates into "God is Omnipotent". SANKOFA means "go back and fetch it". It reminds us to learn from the past and use those experiences for a wiser future. History. Wisdom. Future.
NKYINKYIM represents perseverance through the twists and turns of life which requires versatility and resiliency.
DUAFE represents the powerful, feminine and fearless qualities represented in womanhood... contemplation, compassion, beauty, love & care.
