About the Talenthouse logo
Talenthouse understands and recognizes the challenges that artists face
when trying to reach their audiences and achieve recognition for their
talents. For this reason, Talenthouse chose a logo taken from the West
African "Adinkra" series of symbols, which depicts a snake climbing a
raffia tree. The raffia tree has many thorns and is very challenging to
climb. Simply translated, this symbol means, "to achieve the impossible."
