New Beginnings

1 comment
So I start on a new beginning. This one springs from my love of symbols. I have always been fascinated with the many symbols used down through time by different cultures. Many to stand for the same things. Core values, core beliefs. I have long wanted to do a piece working with some of my favorite symbols and I also recently discovered some symbols that I had never heard of before. Adinkra originates from West Africa, specifically Ghana. From what I understand these people paint beautiful cloths with these symbols, sometimes using them to tell the story of a loved one who has passed on. I find these symbols beautiful and intrigueing. I plan on incorporating some of them into this piece.
