As you can see, the painted symbols in the center panel are similar to the ones in Adinkra 3, in my previous post (sorry for the out of order posting!); this was the inspiration which carried through to a number of new pieces (love when that happens). I'm happy I decided to hand paint each symbol; while it was a great deal of work, it allowed me the flexibility to decide which symbol looked best in each square, and I could adjust its design accordingly. Carving or cutting stamps would have worked too, but I wouldn't have had the same flexibility.
Next up: the largest stamp I've ever designed, and how I used it on another of The Adornment Series wall hangings. Stay tuned.
