Rectification by @yaw@yawtony for @lifeliveth West African Wisdom: Adinkra Symbols & Meanings. ‘UAC nkanea’ is an adinkra symbol which reflects technological change in the society at a particular period: the time when street lights were introduced in Kumasi, the capital of Asante. The design, which shows four-fold rotational symmetry, depicts four interlocking floodlights and, according to G. F. Arthur, became a symbol for the widespread perception of economic domination experienced at the hands of United Africa Company (UAC) businesses.
