According to Dogon mythology, the stones are covenant stones... douge... which represent the bones (and thus the power) of the Lebe, the first Hogon. Length 65 cm (double), so the total length is approx. 130 cm.

    De beschrijving van de blencong is niet correct. Enkel de houten sierplaat is uit de tijd. De houten bak is van een totaal andere kwaliteit. De nieuwe oliebak is van blik - met los zittende tuit.

    De blencong is volledig volgens beschrijving en de vele duidelijke afbeeldingen, daar kan geen enkel misverstand over bestaan. Wat zeer vreemd is, eerst krijg ik een positieve feedback en nu deze negatieve. Zeer teleurstellend deze negatieve reactie 5 dagen na ontvangst en zeer spijtig dat u niet tevreden bent met dit prachtige item.
