Beautiful hammered brass cuff with a sankofa heart adinkra symbol soldered on the front.  2 inches high.  Large opening.  Fits larger wrists.  Sankofa is an African adinkra symbol that means learn from the past.

Adinkra are ancient African visual symbols or motifs that date back to the Akan people in 19th century Ivory Coast and Ghana and express history, culture, beliefs and philosophy. While many symbols represent a proverb or piece of Akan wisdom, other symbols may depict historical events, customs, culture, the natural world or environment.  (Not all symbols have a proverbial expression. Adinkra have historically been painted or printed onto cloth which was then worn during important sacred ceremonies including funerals, weddings, naming festivities and more.  Contemporary use of Adinkra symbols has widened to use in jewelry, architecture and home decor.

Literal meaning:  Return and get it; learning from the past
