Bese Saka Adinkra Art Print

Bese Saka: abundance. affluence. unity.

This yellow poster features the Adinkra symbol Bese Saka, which is a symbol of the abundance, togetherness and unity. The literal translation* of Bese Saka in Akan is "bunch of cola nuts", but the symbolic meaning of Bese Saka can not be limited to a single word. Adinkra symbols are West African designs that have represented elements of Ghanaian values and culture for hundreds of years.


*Literal translation from the book: "The Adinkra Dictionary - A Visual Primer on the Language of Adinkra" and my parents. Akan (or Twi) is a language spoken in both Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire.
