Details

A traditional adinkra symbol from Ghana inspires this necklace by Ali Mohammed. Carved by hand, the ebony wood pendant features the Sankofa image. This is understood as "go back to your roots," a message conveyed through the form of a bird with its head tilted backward. Sese wood globes and bamboo beads align on black cords, and the necklace length can be adjusted by sliding the knot along the cords.
