NYAME ANANSI KOKUROKO, also known as NYANKONPON, is the Highest Creator Being as according to many West African Peoples (particularly the Akan Asante). He is the Father of All Creation. Nyame (God in the Twi Language) is known for His Fathering of three particular children: Tano, Bea, and Kwaku Anansi. His wife and consort is Asase Ya, the Earth Mother.
According to tradition, Nyame, being Lord of Life and Death allowed death to take Him. He overcame it with His Powerul Antidote to show forth His power. This is why when a person dies, they are not truly dead. Within them is the Kra or life essence that came from Nyame.
In my interpretation of this Highest Being, I included an Adinkra on top of His Head as well as around His Neck (Adinkras are symbols that convey spirituality, philosophy, history, and culture, of West African peoples). The symbol on top is the Gye Nyame, which roughly translates to except the Creator, in English. This means that there is no one else but the Creator that created everything there is.
The second Adinkra is Osran Ne Nsoroma. This Adinkra not only symbolically represents the moon and the stars, but also expresses balance or equilibrium between man and woman. As above, so let it be, below. DEOZI! For Artwork Services, Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
