Their religious activities are dictated by the rhythm of the seasons – during the dry season in particular, when the fields are fallow, large festivals and ceremonies are organized. The Lobi people number 250,000 and live across Burkina Faso, the Ivory Coast and Ghana. They revere spirits known as Thil. Shrines are built to these spirits under the instruction of a sorcerer and placed either on the roof or inside the home and are filled with objects such as vessels, abstract iron figures, and stone and wood figures known as Bateba, which are believed to embody the Thil spirits.” Source:Baquart, Jean-Baptiste.
