DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Adinkra symbols come from the Ashanti tribes of Africa, and for long they have been adorning clothes, communicating values and messages through their beauty and simplicity.

Each symbol has a unique meaning according to Adinkra traditions.

DUAFE is the "wooden comb" used by women to lock their hair (a quite similar version exists in Polynesian culture as well), and symbolizes femininity and beauty.

The upper version is the original design, whereas the lower ones are two redesigned versions that include a double spiral, as required by Martina.

finally the book to understand and create Polynesian tattoos!

That´s a great idea and the book looks fab. I wish there were more animal outlines though... - TatFan, Denver
