Click on the characters to learn what they mean!
On a whim, I decided to make a poster of that Igbo proverb about kola nuts (you know the one, "He who brings kola nut, brings life"), but I couldn't find the Nsibidi character for "bring". So here's my first attempt at creating a new Nsbidi character:

The only problem is, I don't know what radicals make up the character for give, I just chose the one that looked the best. Maybe when I know more characters...
Anyway, here's how the poster turned out:
