Nsibidi Chart Available for Viewing and Downloading


The chart above includes all the nsibiri in this system and can be viewed and downloaded as a PDF on scribd, or can be downloaded as an SVG file (for copying individual characters) here [speedy share]. There are 1400 characters. You can reference the latest Ikpo Nsibidi for meanings since the nsibidi are in the same order in the chart and Ikpo Nsibidi. The file is also embedded on the Main Files page of this blog for quicker referencing of all documents.

  1. Get this to the appropriate channels in Nigeria, Language is the greatest form of identity and we need politicians in the east to see this. If there is anyway you can make them aware of it maybe in the next decade or so it will be taught in schools.

    3. Ah, okay. Yes, there are already decorations made with nsibidi, but it's decorative aesthetic is much different from the other scripts though. You can see a bit of this in the design of the Ikpo Nsibidi. Maybe I'll demonstrate in a future post.

  4. Dear Sir,

    I'm looking for a colour photo book about Nsibidi signs on people faces (may be belonging to the Ekpe society). Do you know if there is something anywhere else?
