Details

The legendary Sankofa bird turning its long neck to let its head rest on its back symbolizes a return to one's roots. Eva Asantewa Amakye designs this stunning piece which, according to the customs of the Akan people of Ghana, when used will prevent one from repeating past mistakes. The staff is carved by hand of seasoned sese wood and decorated with embossed aluminum.

Many African societies regard a person with a staff with respect and dignity. Usually associated with age, an elderly person using a staff is believed to have accumulated vast knowledge and wisdom through the years. Traditionally, the design on a staff tells the societal status and political inclination of the person using it.
