Wooden Adinkra Symbol Mirror

Swahili Modern


  • Ghanaian artisans add a textured finish and dark stain to this stylish wooden mirror with traditional Adinkra symbols that are found all over Ghana. Prized for both their beauty and meaning, these three Adinkra symbols--Gye Nyame, Sankofa and Ntesie--adorn the right edge of the mirror. The back includes hanging hardware. Measures 12"L x 1"W x 14"T.

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

    SANKOFA (go back & get it) a symbol of finding wisdom from 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.
