This colourful altar from West African country Benin is on permanent display in the Horniman Museum’s African Worlds gallery.

Vodoun (voodoo) is widely practised in Benin and this altar is dedicated to the vodoun water spirit Mami Wata.

Where else in London can you find examples of Benin culture?
