Symbol of death, transition
The Asante people of West Africa created the Owuo Atwede sign. The ascent into the next dimension is symbolized by this ladder symbol, which signifies man’s mortality. Funeral attire had the emblem emblazoned on it. Along with the Owuo Atwedee emblem, the clothes would have many symbols symbolizing the person’s life. It serves as a reminder to people to do good in this life in order to be worthy of the afterlife.
