Quickly Navigate Symbols by meaning
Adinkra refers to visual symbols representing concepts or aphorisms, originally created by the Akan of Ghana and the Gyaman of Côte d'Ivoire in West Africa.
The Gyaman king, Nana Kwadwo Agyemang Adinkra, originally created or designed these symbols, naming it after himself. Adinkra cloth was worn by the king of Gyaman, and its usage spread from Bono Gyaman to Asante and other Akan kingdoms by its conquerors.
The symbols represent objects that encapsulate evocative messages conveying traditional wisdom, aspects of life, or the environment. The symbols are often used as artistic devices.
