African Feminine “Wife from the Hereafter” Figurine/Fetish in wood from the Baule ethnic group of Ivory Coast - “Waka-Sona” Fetish (wooden being in Baule) representing a “Blolo Bla” (wife from the hereafter).
The Blolo corresponds to everything which is on the other side of life. When an argument occurred within the couple, one would blame a mythical spouse from the hereafter, considering that he/her would disturb the household, because it probably is a soul seeking for its memories, couples would regain seduction and peace within the household by consecrating one day a week to this spirit from the hereafter, in order to calm and honour it, to improve the couple’s relationship.
