Bold colors against a black background and dynamic, gestural strokes define this original acrylic painting from Fiifi Nyame of Ghana. The composition is centered by the adinkra symbol sankofa, which depicts a bird with its head turned around. The symbol means "return and get it", and represents the importance of learning from the past. Adinkra symbols are visual icons used by the Ashanti people, and typically represent common beliefs or proverbs.
