Meaning and philosophical significance of Sunsum
Soul. A symbol of spiritual purity and cleanliness of the soul. The Akans believe that this is the part of God the creator that is transmitted to a person through his father. A person’s mother cannot transmit sunsum to him. Instead, she transfers her mogya (blood) to him.
The meaning of the symbol was taken from Cloth as Metaphor by G. F. Kojo Arthur.
