This Adinkra symbol was sent by eBlack. It´s made of another Adinkra symbol, Gye Nyame, which means "god´s supremacy ", and of a black sun surrounding it.

In the Songhoi culture, the black colour, or "bibi", is a symbol of perfection and pureness. When the sun reaches up to the zenith, and is brightest, it´s called a "black sun".

It´s easy to understand how similar this is to the idea of Divine perfection.

This design means that God is above everything, and to him we owe what we have.
