The name of this pattern is Gye Nyame - or "except God, I fear none" - a symbol of the supremacy of God. This is the most popular Adinkra symbol in Ghana.
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.
