Adinkra 2016 BOM - April
April is here (and has been for 3 weeks!) In the middle of Spring and new blooms and flowers everywhere. Here is our fourth block for 2016:
The fourth applique pattern is for DUAFE - “wooden comb”
Symbol of beauty and cleanliness - desirable feminine qualities
The duafe was a prized possession of the Akan woman, used to comb and plait her hair.
Sorry this is short. I've been on the road most of the past 6 weeks, with a few surprises in there, too. I look forward to June when I can be home and work on my 2018 block a day calendar.
See you next month!
