DESIGN HISTORY
Adinkra symbolism is a visual representation of social thought relating to the history,
philosophy, and religious beliefs of the Akan people of Ghana and Cote’ d’lvoire. Each of the motifs that make up the corpus of Adinkra symbolism has a name and meaning derived either from a proverb, a historical event, human attitude, animal behaviour, plant life, forms, and shapes of inanimate, and man-made objects (Fosu, 1993: 45)... The names given to these symbols indicate their significance. In most cases, the meanings are
associated with the day-to-day activities of the society and may be categorized as follows: aesthetics, ethics, human relations, and religious concepts.
