The Blolo is a parallel universe, invisible to mortals.
Each individual, man or woman, was married since his/her birth, to his/her ‘mystical spouse’, the true spouse, who has the privilege of ‘permanency’, compared to the human spouse.
Most of the Blolo Bla have their hands placed on their belly, next to the navel, to highlight the importance of the transmission of life. The statuette is placed in the bedroom of the spouse, wrapped in cloth and must be worshipped and fed.
Hardwood. Black patina from wear.
