Adinkra - Epa

Epa - Handcuffs 
"Onii a ne pa da wonsa no, na n’akoa ne wo" literally translates in the twi language as "You are a slave to the one whose handcuffs you are wearing".

A symbol of law and justice, slavery and captivity.

Adolph Agbo, in "Values of Adinkra Symbols" notes that handcuffs were introduced in Africa as a result of the slave trade, and later became popular among chiefs in cuffing offenders of the law. "The symbol reminds offenders of the uncompromising nature of the law. It however discourages all forms of slavery."
