Poster: Blue Sankofa Bird
Sankofa: You must have knowledge of your past, in order to move forward;
Remember your Roots.
Sankofa - an Adinkra symbol of the Akan of West Africa, is based on a mythical bird with its feet firmly planted forward with its head turned backwards. Thus, the Akan believe the past serves as a guide for planning the future. To the Akan, it is this wisdom in learning from the past which ensures a strong future. A Sankofa bird holds an egg is its mouth signifying the delicate nature of life. Black Cardboard Mat Frame H= 20" W= 16"
