The Akan, then later Asante, people (Ghana/Côte d’Ivoire) created the adinkra symbols which incorporate their philosophies, folk-tales and culture. They represent popular proverbs and maxims, record historical events, express particular attitudes or behaviour related to depicted figures, or concepts uniquely related to abstract shapes.
