There was a Muvari shaman who styled herself a priestess of the goddess Shrikna of the twelve eyes, whose worshipers came to the temple and bowed down before a golden idol that consisted of these twelve eyes melded together in a weird form over a gaping mouth. After making appropriate donations, members of the congregation could ask the idol questions and gain wisdom from this oracle of Shrikna. However, one day it was discovered that the high priestess, Sribner, was casting her voice and causing the idol to speak. Thenceforth, the expression ‘Sribner’s Idol’ suggests someone who is a mouthpiece or puppet for another.
