The double gongs were used by the oba (king) during the Emobo ceremony to drive away evil spirits. The carvings on this gong, one of only 6 known to exist, depicts the oba supported by his military commander and his heir. This is one of the oldest surviving African ivory sculptures.
This figure most likely stood on an altar dedicated to a deceased oba. His attire indicates that he is a court official and the leopard tooth necklace was only worn by warriors. The horn that the figure once held may have been used for ceremonial purposes.
This tiny book is filled with invaluable wisdom perfect for those of us who are aware of and acknowledge that we are spiritual beings first. I highly recommend reading this book, especially if you are facing a tough time and are in need of some enlightened words to bring clarity to your mind and understanding to your heart. Below are some highlights from the book that I found particularly insightful.
OSHO has taught me more about courage than any other human. I wanted to share some of his teachings with you from “Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously.” I uphold him as one of my spiritual leaders and have only love for him. Namaste lovely beings!
This picture was sent to me by a dear friend visiting D.C. from London. My friend said that she has been seeing covert love and healing messages in this country and in hers more and more lately. I recently read a tweet saying, there is no such thing as “conditional love”, there is only love. Let’s make the evolutionary leap to a heartcentric way of life and use love energy as our starting point for all things. Love is the way!
Eye-and-eye mantra: be the woman you want to be at all times.
