The objects are used during processions of initiates or during burial rituals, when they are swung rhythmically from side to side to call ancestral spirits to the rites. The gendered figures represent the primordial couple: Katyleo is the ancestral mother figure, who has protective and magical powers as life-giver and nurturer, and Maleo is the male counterpart. With their relaxed stance, both muscular figures convey a sense of balance, symmetry, and serenity. The verticality of the sculpted pieces suggests their connection to both the earthly and spiritual realms. Female; See Sotheby's for more info.
