The museum itself is equally as exotic as the exhibits. In Germany’s only Voodoo-museum the photojournalist and ethnologist Henning Christopher shows, amongst other things, the altar of the Water Goddess Mami Wata, who is surrounded by an entire host of deities, masks and sculptures. One annex is devoted to ancestors and a further area of the small scurrilous collection deals with magic and natural medicine.
