Translation request for tattoo..

Postby mwilson15 on Thu Aug 28, 2008 3:40 pm

hey I want to get this tattoo in Twi

there must be movement with times but as the forward march proceeds, the gems must be picked from behind and carried forward on the march

If anyone could help me out or point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

mwilson15,

I don't know what the text translation would be, but what you said sounds very similar to "sankofa" to me.

It is an adinkra symbol represented by the bird at the top left of the screen. It means "return and get it".

You can read more about it at this page on twi.bb
