Feathers Of Ashé

Feathers of Ashé is a mural located inside the Milwaukee County Courthouse. It is based on the symbolism of the feather, within the Yoruba and Afro-Caribbean beliefs, which represents the full power of the cosmic energy known as Ashé--a philosophical concept through which we can conceive the power to make things happen and produce change and a component of the life force breathed into each living creature. It means "May it manifest!"
