You might be interested to know that the logo of IASA 2018 conference
depicts the Sankofa bird, which is one of the Akan/Ashanti art symbols, and
it “depicts a mythical bird flying forward with its head turned backward.
The egg in its mouth represents the ‘gems’ or knowledge of the past upon
which wisdom is based; it also signifies the generation to come that would
benefit from that wisdom.”(quoted from the Witness Stones website, read
more here: https://witnessstones.org/what-are-witness-stones/
sankofa-by-design/ ) Thank you to our local hosts from the Institute of
African Studies, University of Ghana, for providing us with this idea and
