Digital Art - Prints
From my series Adinkra Symbols of West Africa.
Akoben represents Vigilance. The Andinkra are visual symbols, originally created by the Akan. The symbols represent concepts or aphorisms. Adinkra are used extensively in fabrics and pottery 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.
The symbols have a decorative function but also represent objects that encapsulate evocative messages that convey traditional wisdom, aspects of life or the environment. There are many different symbols with distinct meanings.
This piece and all other works in the galleries represent Art with a global flair.
Its an eclectic mixture of styles and topics, influenced by a variety of world cultures. When we surround ourselves with artwork our lives are enriched.
Like good books they linger in our being and help shape who we are and how we view the world.
Having a favorite piece of art or two around to view on a regular basis is good for your spirit and that is always worth the investment.
The images are available in a variety of formats and sizes.
There is sure to be something just perfect for your needs, wants and most importantly because its art, your passion.
