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.
