This is a shrine that honors the human head, which is believed by the Yoruba to be the container of the soul and the determinant of one's fortune. For this reason, the head is often magnified in Yoruba art. The House of the Head, or ile ori, is an ornamental chest in the shape of a four-sided crown. The cowrie shells that cover the shrine refer to the wealth and social status of their owner. An ile ori may contain smaller shrines and prayers to sustain the power of the head.
