*Adinkra are visual symbols from the Akan tribes of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire in West Africa. They represent concepts, original thoughts, and popular proverbs in easily memorable form. They’re also a record of historical events and express traditional attitudes

Meaning of the Charms:
Adinkra “Akofena” (the crossed swords) Symbol of Courage, Valour and Heroism
‘Kwatekye Atiko’ the symbol signifies bravery & valour, because it was like the hairstyle of a brave war captain of the old Ashanti Kingdom.
