Adinkra Symbol FOFO - Seeds of a plant
"When the fofo's petals drop, they turn into black spiky-like seeds. The Akan liken the nature of this plant to a jealous person."
- The Adinkra Dictionary by W. Bruce Willis
There is a Akan proverb associated with this symbol: "What the fofo plant wishes is that the gyinantwi seeds turn black."
The adinkra symbols represent popular proverbs and maxims, record historical events, and express particular attitudes or behavior related to depicted figures, or concepts uniquely related to abstract shapes. Originating in Ghana from the Akan.
