    Two types of statues are produced by the Baule in a ritual context: Waka-Sona statues, "being of wood" in Baule, evoke an assié oussou, being of the earth. They are part of a type of statues intended to be used as a medium tool by the diviners komien, the latter being selected by the spirits asye usu in order to communicate revelations from the beyond. The second type of statues, made according to the indications of the diviner, are the spouses of the afterlife, male, the Blolo bian or female, the blolo bia. This type of "companion" was abandoned or given up after the death of their Baule owner, logically no longer having a role to play.
