11/11/2018 marks 100 years since the end of WW1.
In commemoration we have featured a set of specially commissioned medals we created with Ghanaian gold in collaboration with Peter Blake. Each medal represents a traditional Adinkra symbol:
Akoma - the heart - patience and tolerance
Nsoromma - child of the heavens - guardianship
Adinkrahene - chief of Adinkra symbols - greatness, charisma, leadership
Osram ne Nsoromma - the moon and the star - love, faithfulness, harmony
As part of the WW1 commemorations we hosted a BBC interview about the contribution of African soldiers in the war with reference to the medals; you can see the feature here
