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.

Objects are sent with a certificate of authenticity delivered by Michel DERMIGNY, Vanikoro Gallery, including a professional invoice and track & trace.

We guarantee quality parcels. Parcels are sent via an express parcel service (Colissimo) of the French Post, with track & trace. Shipment worldwide.

You can view and/or pick up the piece in Ajaccio, 20090 France.

    Bonjour,

    Désolé pour ce retard,
    a priori, la Poste n'a pas pu vous livrer le colis samedi, vous pouvez vérifier son statut :
    https://www.laposte.fr/outils/suivre-vos-envois?code=6C14363784750
    Si vous n'avez rien d'ici la fin de la semaine, je déclarerais un litige avec La Poste.
    Bien cordialement
