Our figurine couple presents the male " Blolo-Bla " and the female " Blolo-Bian " ancestor.
This "Blolo" pair manifested itself mostly at night in a dream and then still with serial content.
Placed in the house altar, they were revered, fed and washed to solve the practical and spiritual problems of the owner.
