Snuff containers and mortars are still used by diviners, as tobacco is a tool for communicating with the ancestors. It is used in divination to put the diviner in contact with the spirits. Tobacco was ground in small wooden mortars which were sometimes decorated with carved figures. These mortars were precious luxury items highly cherished by their owners.
