DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Duafe is an Adinkra symbol that comes originally from Ghana, and on this account we placed it in our section dedicated to Africa, even if it has been revisited in a Maori style. It represents a woman comb, and it symbolizes beauty and femininity.

Accordingly we thought of using the motifs of the waves (water itself is a symbol of femininity and fertility), korus (new life) and a stylized manta in the second version, a symbol of beauty and freedom.

finally the book to understand and create Polynesian tattoos!

I have skimmed through the book and become so very interested in the contents... Very good and suitable for a self-education in Tattoo-ology! - Anne, London
