Description

A beautiful bird made by the Ashanti/Asante tribe from Ghana. It is called Sankofa and translates as "reach back and get it". The sankofa bird also appears on carved wooden Akan stools, in Akan goldweights, on some ruler's state umbrella or parasolfinials and on the staff finials of some court linguists. It functions to foster mutual respect and unity in tradition.

Provenance: Private collection. F.d.G in NL / Tribal Art Treasures
