Sumba stones

Sumba stones are native to the Indonesian island of Sumba. They may appear to be attractive decorative figures, but there is more to that. These stones were placed outside of settlements to protect residents from disease, dark magic, and attacks. Furthermore, it was believed that each statue carried the spirit of captured adversaries, and that a magical substance from the enemy's body had to be poured into holes etched in the sculptures to activate the guardian superpower in them. Isn't that fascinating? The next time someone compliments your Sumba stones, tell them about their initial function as protectors in Sumba!
