Description

Hand-carved ceramic cup with Adinkra symbol for parenthood

This small ceramic cup is hand-carved with African art: the West African symbol "Akoko nan," which means literally "the hen's feet." Its meaning comes from a saying, "Akoko nan tia ba, na ennkum no," which translates to: The hen treads upon its chicks but she does not kill them.

It symbolizes the ideal nature of parents, being both protective and corrective. An exhortation to nurture children, but a warning not to pamper them. It makes a unique and meaningful baby shower or Kwanzaa gift.

The cup was made on the wheel with white stoneware, then carved when the clay was leather-hard. After bisque, the piece was dipped in a clear glaze for luster.


Dimensions: 3 1/4" (8.5 cm) tall
3" (8 cm) wide
