A symbol of providence and the divinity of Mother Earth.
Asase Ye Duru—literally meaning “the earth has no weight”—is a symbol that represents power, providence and divinity.
The symbol is one of many adinkras, or depictions of important concepts created by the Akan peoples of Ghana.
Asase Ye Duru emphasizes the importance of the Earth and its preservation. People must respect and nurture the Earth, and should never act in ways that might directly or indirectly harm the Earth.
