An original divination board, also known as a Opon iIa from the Yoruba people. This is the main tool of a Yoruba diviner. The diviner, known as a Babalawo is a seer who works in a similar way to a tarot card reader, acting as an intermediary with the board in front of them. He would spread flower on the tray, and by casting palm nuts over the flower would make predictions. There is a face of Eshu carved on top, reresenting the "all seeing eye". The board appears very old and has a lovely patina.
