Three Fante women 1895-1910 Elisofon

Three Fante women from the early British colonial period with elaborate hairstyles. The standing woman has a beautiful dress and wrapper of adinkra cloth stamped with swastikas. This symbol is found on Akan (Fante, Asante, Bron, etc) metal workings such as goldweights and as an adinkra symbol as shown here. This image is from The Eliot Elisofon Photographic Archives at the National Museum of African Art sirismm.si.edu/siris/eepatop.htm
