E-94-menhir-1ITS–Some of the megalithic treasures in Sulawesi are concentrated around Lake Poso. The treasures consist of menhirs and menhirs based on man; erect, rude stones carved in the form of a human without feet. The tallest of the statues is 1.75 centimeters, and generally the bottom part of the statues is buried from 20 and 30 centi-meters deep in the earth.

These small statues are spread in the villages around the lake: six statues in Besoha, 13 in Bada, and three in Padepokea Hill.

The statues have been studied by many experts, including Kilian (1908), Kryut (1929), Schiujt, Ten Kate, Grubaner (1913), Raven (1929, 1933), Kandern (1938), and Haris Sukendar (1993).
