Teak & Metal Accent Table with Dwennimmen Symbol

Swahili Modern


  • This gorgeous accent table handcrafted in Ghana, featuring a beautifully grained teak inset in a sturdy metal frame, will be a warm, stylish addition to your living space. A lost wax brass Dwennimmen symbol adorns the tabletop of this stackable piece.

    In the Adinkra symbol system of West Africa, the Dwennimmen is styled after ram's horns. Dwennimmen calls for individuals to remember to balance strength with humility, like the ram who fights with all his might, yet also humbly surrenders to slaughter.

    Table measures 12"L x 12"W x 18"T.

  • Ghana produces one of the strongest teak woods available. Teak is highly valued for its durability, water resistance, and attractive graining which makes it suitable for outdoor furniture as well as interior use. Talented artisans in Ghana use this beautifully grained teak as insets in sturdy metal framed tables.
