SuSu was featured in my First Series of Art Inspired by African Masks. I have brought her back as SuSu Too in my Second Series.
SuSu is a chatter box and her name is derived from the English word “Suss” which means to investigate or to gain knowledge. The slaves incorporated it into their language.
“Gal, a av sum gud suss fi gi yu” – Jamaican patois which means “Girl, I have something juicy to tell you.”
