Abstract

The Sumedang Larang Kingdom was one of the Sundanese kingdoms that once existed in West Java, and experienced a collapse in 1620 after the death of King Geusan Ulun, but the remains of historical objects, and royal heirlooms or artifacts that remain today still exist, and are stored in the Prince Geusan Ulun Museum. These heirlooms will be cleaned in September 2022 during the 'Ngumbah Pusaka' ritual procession. So this research will analyze the meaning contained in these artifacts. This study used a qualitative descriptive analysis method, and to analyze it used Susanne K. Langer's symbol theory model. The results of the study found that the meaning, and philosophy contained in the artifacts from the Sumedang royal heritage were associated with Sundanese identity.
