In A CALABASH OF COWRIES, Yeye Teish presents new versions of more than 20 traditional Ifa-Orisa stories—wise teachings revisited, revised and retold, along with a “Wisdom Ways Appendix” containing personal ritual instruction. This work contains an abundance of beautiful, powerful, sacred knowledge medicine.
You will also find 11 beautiful illustrations developed from original artworks—some created especially for the book by visual artists Nedra T. Williams, Gail Williams, and Carla Johnson and Luisah Teish. The front cover art was adapted from an original ink drawing by Nedra T. Williams, “Queen Africa.” Cover design by Alex Dimeff, UNO Press.
