"Bulul" predominantly had the task to protect the rice against thieves and vermin, to cause the rice to multiply, and to prevent famine.
Most "bulul" were created in connection with elevation in rank to the status of the elite called "kadangyan". Some "bulul" were created in commemoration of the marriage union of a couple belonging to the elite "kadangyan". Other "bulul" were produced to cure illnesses, specifically bone diseases and muscle disorders.
