adinkra stamp - Nkyinkyin
artist: David Boamah
vendor: aba's shop
The name of this pattern is Nkyinkyin - or "twistings" - a symbol of toughness and adaptability.
Adinkra stamps are indigenous to Ghana and are carved from calabash. These are actual stamps used in Ghana to make Adinkra cloth patterns. Be creative and stamp them in clay, dough or perhaps just put them on your table as a conversation piece.
