The ‘Shaman’ room is one of the museum’s exhibits room .
The Shaman room is an exhibit room devoted to the role of medicine man in primitive cultures. The walls have a jungle motif, and the one exit is hidden by this motif, fitting in with the belief that one is hidden in the jungle or rain forest.
In this room, in one corner, there is a set up of a primitve hut. Inside are examples of items that the medicine man might use. In some cultures, the medicine man is called a shaman, and so there are some items that belong to just a shaman in the hut.
By the entrance to the room, there are three items that are not fully linked with the Shaman, but could be linked to the religion of VooDoo. Since VooDoo has been linked to, or compared to, the roles and practices of the Medicine Man, it is possible that Professor Windlenot thought they would fit in there.
Most important to the room, however, is the figure that stands near some primative drums. This is the example of the witch doctor. It is believed that most witch doctors, shamans, and medicine men use music of some sorts, usually percussions, for their ceremonies. In the figure's hands is a mallet for those drums. These drums are linked to the second exit from the room.
ExitsEditThere are two exits in the Shaman room. The first one is the doors to the Funeral Rites room. The second one, which is hidden in the walls of the room, and can only be revealed by the drum puzzle. This exit leads to the Gods and Religious Items exhibit room.
There is only one known hiding spot in the Shaman room.
