    Description: Amuah studied MA Textile Design at Chelsea College of Arts. The designer reflects abstracted Ghanaian symbols of Adinkra in her prints, said to offer evocative truths and practical interpretations of humanity. Funtunfunefu Denkyemfunefu, the symbol in this work, indicates a Siamese crocodile. Its proverb speaks of unity; the crocodiles share one stomach yet they fight over food. It serves as a reminder that infighting is futile to all who partake in it.
