"This symbols is said to be a special hair style of Kwatakye, a war captain of old Asante.
The symbol has come to represent bravery and fearlessness. It is also given as an earned title to any brave son of an Akan community."

Signs is a collaborative project created by Caroline Jung. The Adinkra symbol I created was selected to be a part of this 170 worldwide mosaic artist collaboration.
Signs was exhibited at the 2015 International Mosaic Conference held in Ravenna, Italy. Each mosaic element was 8 in x 8 in. My contribution is on the 4th rows down from the left, and 8th column to the right.
