Gold weight of a crocodile with two heads and one stomach.
It shows a common Ghanaian motif which encapsulates a proverb about crocodiles fighting even though they share one stomach. The two-headed crocodile can represent conflict and greed, particularly in the family. This motif also indicates cooperation and interdependence.

The Ashanti people, in modern Ghana, often used depictions of a two-headed crocodile to demonstrate their belief in the possibility of consensus to always be reached. While in the short term the interests of the two heads may differ, their long term goal to fill their shared stomach is consensual.
