Gbékré Baule mouse oracle box (N° 19252)
Intended for a practice still in use in the southwest of the Baule region, the object consists of a tutelary mediating figure, visibly in meditation, resting on a circular receptacle. The lid is engraved, and a circular frieze decorates the lower part of the receptacle. A mouse, considered as a messenger of the deities of the earth asié , lived in the lower compartment of the object and the successive arrangement of the elements it moved was read as an answer to the question asked to the diviner.
