The Fowler’s new curator of African arts, Gemma Rodrigues, examines a selection of African divination objects in Intersections. A close study of works— including a 19th century Opon Ifa, or Yoruba divination tray, a pair of Madebele Senufo divination figurines, and a 19th century Kashekesheke divining instrument from the Congo—reveals the diversity of African cosmological systems and differing concepts of fate, destiny, and causality.
