Obaatan Awaamu Bead
Obaatan Awaamu refers to the Akan proverb “a good mother doesn´t know a bad child” or “a good mother knows what her children will eat”, meaning that a child that receives love and care can only be successful, as there are no bad children. Only children who don’t receive care will fail. This symbol, which is for women only, represents maternal love, care, tenderness, compassion, empathy and consolation.
