Savings Savings

This quilt is called Solitude. This quilt features the adinkra symbol- Gye Nyame. This unique and beautiful symbol is ubiquitous in Ghana. It is by far the most popular for use in decoration, which is a testament to the deeply religious character of the Ghanaian people. The meaning is "except for God", symbol of the supremacy of God. I've heard it explained as "only God" meaning that when all things are stripped away, only God is left.

It is a wonderful patchwork quilt that is hand quilted. It is 37"x37". Great wall hanging quilt.
