The ’11’ Day Countdown – Day 5: Adinkra Symbols of West Africa

On Today’s Countdown, I talk about something that’s kinda dear and personal to me. It’s the Adinkra Symbols from West Africa. When I 1st learned about them at College, I was astounded and surprised at the same time that a Region in Africa (besides Egyptian Hieroglyphics) had some type of written Language, something I would have never learned about in traditional US Schools.

So over the years, I studied them and use some of them in my Graphic Art/Gaming project; I chose probably the most Famous and Known Symbol, ‘Gye Nyame‘ as one of my Main Logos in various Projects.

These are some of the Variations I’ve done of the Original Gye Nyame, with the 3rd one the current one I use for many of my Projects (Mainly the Zodiac Ninja Apostle Series). I will also make a Personal Page for them in the Future, but for now you can read up more on them over in the FAQs section of PIOSystems. Again thanks for reading and if you have any Questions, just Post a Comment or reach out over on the Contacts pages.
