Staffs in Africa have numerous & varied uses, ranging from the practical function of a walking stick to the symbolism of political, spiritual or other religious matters. The more elaborately sculpted staffs could communicate specific messages. In this instance, both the "blolo bian" & the "blolo bla" the male & female spouses from the other world, are represented.
