Africa and Adinkra

African and Adinkra Designs, Paintings and Illustrations

Adinkra are visual symbols, originally created by the Akan of Ghana and the Gyaman of Cote d'Ivoire in West Africa, that represent concepts or aphorisms. Adinkra are used extensively in fabrics, pottery, logos and advertising. They are incorporated into walls and other architectural features. Fabric adinkra are often made by woodcut sign writing as well as screen printing. Adinkra symbols appear on some traditional akan gold weights. The symbols are also carved on stools for domestic and ritual use. Tourism has led to new departures in the use of the symbols in such items as T shirts and jewelry. Let us create unique and personalized products for your special event by mixing and matching some of our snowflake illustrations with other design elements that can be found on our website.

Any of our products can be customized with any of these designs.
