Gye Nyame Pyramid Kwanzaa Kinara: Large Set
Kwanzaa is an opportunity to celebrate African traditions and culture. We celebrate the Seven Principals: Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self-determination), Ujima (collective work and responsibility), Ujamaa (cooperative economics), Nia (purpose), Kuumba (creativity) and Imani (faith). This Gye Nyame Pyramid Kwanzaa Kinara provides an attractive and dramatic holder for the traditional red, green and black candles that are lit each night to celebrate the Seven Principals. It is black and shaped like an Egyptian pyramid with the Gye Nyame symbol that signifies the supremacy of God in all things outlined in white. It is sure to become the centerpiece of your family’s Kwanzaa celebration. The base measures 16.5" long and 1.75" wide. Kinara is 7" tall in the center. Made in Ghana
