Ritual figurine: Hapag

Hapag harbour strong forces, during rituals they were sprinkled with the blood of a sacrificial animal (often a pig or chicken) or with libations of rice wine. Hapag are generally stored in the punamhan or in baskets with other granary figures (such as Bulul). They differ from Bulul in size and shape, but are essentially miniature versions of these figurines.
