Africa | House of the Head Shrine (Ile-Ori) | | Throughout Yorubaland, a person venerates his or her ori-inu ("inner head"), a personal spirit that guides an individual's destiny. The symbol of the inner head is a small conical object, which is in turn secreted in a larger container with a conical lid called ile-ore, literally, "house of the head." The ile-ori which serves as a shrine to the ori-inu, is made from leather, cloth and covered with beads and/or cowrie shells
