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 swordfish is a very common and prevalent symbol of the gold weights. With its' highly aesthetic and stylised shape, it is used on fabrics, as well as on currencies.

This is a very nice and symbolic gift.
