Ref: sf-2113Height 46CMProduct DescriptionBotchio Fon pole from Togo. Piece over 50 years old. Piece on base. The Botchio (Boccio, Bocio, Botchio) whose name is made up of two distinct words, "BO" which means "power, evil spell" and "CIO" which designates a "corpse", is part of a vast pantheon of deities unified in the 17th century when the Voodoo rite was created. Like all the deities, the Bocio also receives offerings (gourds, asen, pieces of iron supposed to represent the ancestors, cowries). We feed it with palm oil and animal blood, installing it under a small shelter covered with palm leaves. From there, he can exercise his powers. The Bocio is a sentinel who will watch over a house, a clan, a village, a secret society or an individual. It is sometimes claimed that he takes on the deceptive appearance of the head of the family in the guise of a corpse to deter the enemy from casting a spell. But more commonly it is said that he becomes the corpse of the curse cast against the inhabitant of the house of which he is the guardian. It has even happened that a slave is attached to it so that the evil is absorbed or stopped in a radical way. The Bocio fetish can be used for either good or evil purposes. Its primary function is to get in touch with the spirits of the other world to repel harmful forces. Do not confuse the Bocio fetish with the Bocio stake which is generally planted at the entrance of houses and symbolizes the god Vodun Legba, protector of the house and the family. Texts by Jacques Kerchache adapted in particular from pages 29/30 of the Voodoo book. They come in all sizes, with or without irons, with irons implanted at the top of the head (God Gu?) with double heads...African art, African maskafrican art african tribal arte africana afrikanische kunstPart delivered with an invoice and a certificate of authenticity.The Botchio (Boccio, Bocio, Botchio) whose name is made up of two distinct words, "BO" which means "power, evil spell" and "CIO" which designates a "corpse", is part of a vast pantheon of deities unified in the 17th century when the Voodoo rite was created.
