Adinkra symbols, often printed on cloth, are representations of proverbs, attitudes, and historical events of the Akan people of Ghana and the Ivory Coast, Africa. "Denkyem" crocodile lives in water and breathes air, thus typifies the character trait of being able to adapt to different circumstances. A strong character trait indeed... I include a card explaining the Adinkra symbol with the purchase of the textile art piece.
Dimensions: 11" x 11"
Denkyem fiber art is stretched over a wood frame and hangs from a sawtooth hanger. It arrives ready to hang.

Thank you for taking a look at my fiber art! I love the vibrance and unusual patterns of African wax print batiks and will be listing more pieces soon.
