Odun Ifa

Date: June 1 – June 31 2021

Featuring ’16 pieces of Odu IFA’ representing the 16 major Odu’s from the holy corpus of Odu Ifa in celebration of the annual world Ifa Festival.

Odun Ifa Traditional belief is based on the worship of a supreme being called Olodumare (The creator of the universe) and various deities known as Orisa’s and Irunmole’s. The Yoruba system of divination called IFA- Orunmila through the Holy Odu’s (Holy Verses) spread not only throughout Yorubaland of West Africa but to other countries around the world such as Latin America, Caribbean, and the Americas. IFA Orunmila is the voice of Olodumare and the mouth-piece for all the Orisa’s and Irumoles. He is the witness to all destinies.
