Details

Transformed into earrings by Joycelyn Sena Zigah is a beloved adinkra symbol. These West African symbols communicate sayings and concepts through images. "The Sankofa depicts a bird that turns to look over its shoulder. It literally means to 'go back and get it', also translated as 'back to my roots.' Sankofa symbolizes one taking from the past what is good and bringing it into the present in order to make positive progress through the benevolent use of knowledge," she says.

Though she was not born in West Africa, my granddaughter (born in Ethiopia) will treasure this for her whole life. She was so thrilled to receive it.

I was surprised at how thin the silver is given the price (and I used a 50% off coupon)
