Adinkra Symbol- Wood Earrings.

SANKOFA-"return and get it"

Symbol of importance of learning from the past


"wooden comb"

Symbol of beauty and cleanliness; symbols of desirable feminine qualities

The meaning of this symbol is characterized slightly differently in "The Adinkra Dictionary" and "The Values of Adinkra Symbols"; the former emphasizes more abstract qualities of feminine goodness, love and care, while the latter has a more literal interpretation, looking one's best and good hygiene. In any case, the duafe was a prized possession of the Akan woman, used to comb and plait her hair.


 These are approximately 2.5 inches in length and  1.25 inches wide.
