These heads seem to have been sculpted as such, without a body, reminiscent of Akan or Anyi statuary. They have the appearance of a sort of plug, sunk into the ground in a circular fashion around tumuli, tombs that are themselves circular and covered with stones.
Object of excavations.
The first ones were discovered in the years 1970-80 by German anthropologists who dated them between the XIII° and XIX° century.
