Set/3 Ghanaian Adinkra Symbol Ornaments

Swahili Modern


  • These meaningful ornaments from Ghana are hand-carved from sustainably sourced wood, then dressed up with a hammered texture and painted finish.

    Featuring the Gye Nyame, Sankofa, and Ntesie symbols, the set allows you to display Adinkra wisdom in the home.

    Measures 3.5"L x 0.25"W x 4"T.

    GYE NYAME (except for God) a symbol of the omnipotence and supremacy of God.

    SANKOFA (go back and get it) a symbol of finding wisdom from the lessons of the past.

    NTESIE (I have heard and kept it) a symbol of readiness to learn.

  • Founded by Andy Koney nearly 20 years ago in his bedroom, today the Ghanian artistic collective known as Yenok employs 40 men and women who are dedicated to creating beautiful furniture and woodworking art, often with a spiritual flair. Yenok's products are recognized for their high quality and custom craftsmanship.
