The carved stone monoliths of the Alok/Ikom area were made of basalt rocks with fine carvings of eyes, mouths and navels, then often laid out in circular henges for ceremonial usage. Sadly, the spate of looting over the last two decades has removed many; and a recent industry makes granite replicas (purporting to be originals) - with covert sales reaching as far away as South Africa and the USA.
