the design of the pendant is one of the two Adinkra symbols which translates “return and get it”, ie. the importance of learning from the past and sticking to the good things in one’s history. It comes from the Akan tribes of Ghana and neighbouring Cote d’Ivoire where they are used to express traditional beliefs values, and philosophy, among others. There is more on Adinkra in this section
