Large figure, which is completely covered below the shoulders.
The lower part of the body is surrounded with tree bark, strips of fabric, cords; a small clay vase is attached to the front.
Bochios are used to heal or protect you.
Their real purpose is for the most part a secret between the maker and the customer.

Clear signs of use, matt, patina thickly caked in sacrificial offerings.
The figure was probably used for healing.
