Kwanzaa Card with Adinkra Symbol Nsirewa
Nsirewa (Adinkra Ideographic Symbol)
The original Adinkra symbol of four linked cowrie shells representing unity and togetherness is further abstracted and personified. In this reinterpretation, the cowries interlock hands to symbolize unbreakable bonds forged between us and those we love.
Adinkra symbols are ideographic African symbols that condense complex life concepts into powerful singular symbols.
Our cards are printed on high quality, FSC certified paper and use a matte or uncoated paper. White sealable envelope included for each card.

Project: Adinkra Redesign
AfriMod take on seven Adinkra ideographic symbols. An Adinkra redesign project that resulted in fresh minimalist reinterpretations.
Adinkra are ideographic symbols or pictograms that flourished in ancient Ghanian textiles and gold weights designs. These symbols represented concise concepts, sayings, or proverbs that express traditional wisdoms of the Akan (Asante) people.
