This Old Beautiful Yoruba Tray is from Nigeria in West Africa. This tray is beautifully carved with a beautiful patina and is old and used. Divination (Ifa) is practiced to explain misfortunes and help to prevent them. In Western Africa, the Yoruba people of Nigeria and Benin use a decorated tray for divination. This round board is carved with geometric or animal motifs and one or more images of Eshu, the Yoruba trickster deity, who is thought to deliver messages to and from the spirit world. The divining process begins by covering the board with white chalk. The diviner then throws palm nuts onto the board and interprets the markings they make on its surface. This Tray is a wonderful old piece of Yoruba Culture and would make a beautiful gift for your home or someone special.
