Adinkra Grey Peshtemal
Peshtemals are traditionally used in Turkish baths. They can also be used as towels at the beach, by the pool or at home. The 3rd Culture pattern was created using the Mmere Dane symbol and the Chintemani motif. Mmere Dane is the Adinkra Symbol of change and symbolizes the dynamic nature of life. Adinkra symbols originate in West Africa and have been used in African visual arts since the 12th century. The Chintemani represents power, force and courage in Turkish decorative arts. It has its roots in Asia, where it symbolizes the three virtues of Buddha.
