The Akan people used weights for gold. These weights were refined sculptures, that until today are still in use in the pictural arts of many countries of Western Africa.

The turtle has a high symbolic value all over the world. The turtle symbolises Mother Earth herself. Her shields is protective and she is a symbol of reproduction and fertility. With her slow yet steady movements, the turtle symbolises wisdom and longevity.

This is a very nice and symbolic gift.
