  • Handmade
  • Materials: Wood

Please specific coaster design:

Option 1:
Dwennimmen (means ram’s horns) - Walnut Wood Coasters.
The symbol is created from a bird’s eye view
of the two rams butting heads. A ram will courageously fight when provoked,
but may submit to slaughter when necessary. Sometimes even a strong &
confident person has to also be humble.

Option 2:
Fawohodie (a symbol of freedom)
A symbol of Freedom, Independence & Emancipation

Fawohodie comes from the expression: Fawodhodie ene obre na enam,
which means: "Independence comes with its responsibilities."

“X” often stands for the unknown.
I love this Fawohodie symbol because it reminds me of thousands of unknown
people who lost their lives, names and freedom when they were taken from Africa.
People who I am proud to call my ancestors.

The Nation of Islam believed that the real names of the African Americans
was taken and replaced with their slave master’s names when they were
enslaved from Africa. In protest, Malcolm X refused to use his ‘slave master’
surname "Little" until he found his real name. He replaced his surname “Little”
with the letter “X”.

Love - love - love. Beautiful pieces and it smelled so good too! Angela is awesome being very friendly and responsive. My order was delivered timely despite my "rush" for delivery request for a group event. Sample cards were also included which are of high quality. Thanks Angela. Much appreciated.
