In ancient times, the loved ones had the tradition of worshipping their virtues after their demise. The practice of growing more and more family was practiced when those who worked for their family to progress were worshipped after their deaths. One of the rituals is to make the dead sieve. The ancestral worship is to pay tribute to the experiences of the ancestors who have been with us in the relationship and blood of the tribes. This cult was associated with the middle stone worship of the people of this group over time. These are the foundations of the study of the ancient cult sculptors and theories of the present day.
