Fish Scale


ALSO KNOWN AS

Finger Nail, Akpirikpa Azu, Bijenkorfje, Abarro Basso

This design has been given several names across several countries. “Akpirikpa azu” means ‘fish scale’ in Igbo language. It is so called among the Igbo of eastern Nigeria because the design looks similar to the scale pattern on the tropical tilapia fish. “Bijenkorfje” is South-African for ‘bee hyve’, which is also inspired by the structure of the pattern.
