Annotation
An anthropomorphic wooden figure with nine protrusions on the head representing spirits. The patron spirit Ayami told the shaman everything secret: his image was always present at large shamanic rites - healing, seeing off the soul, fishing. During the ceremony, new wood shavings were hung on the figurine.
