A carved, wooden tray is the pivotal instrument used in Ifa divination consultation. After dusting powdered Kola nuts across the trayís surface, the diviner records numerologically significant patterns in the chalky coating. He then interprets these symbols according to hundreds of sacred verses he has memorized & relates the message to his client. The face of Eshu, the messenger of the gods, is prominently featured on the tray. Eshuís mystical abilities, reveals the secrets of fate and the potential for changing it.
