Recycled plastic beaded wood sculpture, 'Green Akofena' (Ghana)

Depicting two crossed swords, the Adinkra symbol Akofena represents courage and valor. Ghanaian artist Malik Jabir Dodoo creates this cultural Akofena sculpture, hand-carved from sese wood and decorated by hand with beads of recycled plastic in hues of green, black, and white. The sculpture is displayed atop a black wood base.
