Bird, embroidered by a 7-year old girl.
Porcupine, detail of an asafo flag of the Fante.
Detail of the Abigail Pett's bed hanging (1700)
Fante monster, detail from asafo flag.
The porcupine was considered to be an ideal
warrior, able to shoot its pines at an enemy
and then quickly to grow more to continue
the fight. Mmmm
harmless. :-) Asafo.
