An Acrylic painting.Chain Links...An Adinkra symbol used by Ashanti People

Chain Links..An Adinkra symbol.
Acrylic on canvas,16" * 24"
This is one more symbol used by Ashanti people
from Ghana,West Africa.I have done one symbol
earlier called Gye Nyame.You can find the image in
my earlier posts.The meaning of this symbol is unity
 and human relations.In unity lies strength.
These are visual symbols and represent concepts
There are many different symbols with distinct
 meanings often linked with proverbs originally
created by Akans of Ghana and Gyaman of
Cote d'Ivoire in West Africa.
I may try some more in the same abstract style.
