Beautiful implementation of a mice Oracle. A special way to the help of spirits or to call the mouse Asye usu in Oracle. Mice could according to the Baule formerly speaking, but at one point they have lost this ability. The mice lived formerly at the spirits in the jungle, but are then at the people in the villages. Tunneling into the Earth and mice are so very close to the spirits. They would have hidden knowledge. A specific group of visionaries is trained to the messages of the mice to figure it out. They use a Gbekre either mouse Oracle. The Gbekre is a wooden pot. This wooden pot with lid worn by a beautifully carved Asye usu. In the Oracle are 10 sticks. These sticks are rubbed with flour. The mice have fasted for the Oracle and the mice crawls through the hole of the bottom of the pot. They lick the flour from the sticks and move the sticks. To the position of the sticks the SoothSayer can read the message of the mice and answer the questions of the person who consults him. And then the sick or those who wanted a decision of the Oracle, explained what the Oracle had said. And, if possible, was the command of the Delphic Oracle. In good used condition. Some insects damage treated with Timpest to elimate insects. Smells like the treatment. Comes from a very old Italian collection from M.Piga- Sardinia. Look very closely at the photos.
