Adinkrahene: greatness. charisma. leadership.

This brown and gold poster symbol features the Adinkra symbol Adinkrahene, which is a symbol of leadership and authority. The literal translation* of the word Adinkrahene in Akan is "King of the Adinkra Symbols", but the symbolic meaning of Adinkrahene 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 spoken in both Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire
