Megalith on Nias, Indonesia

Megaliths, some decorated, were a part of the culture of the island of Nias off the western coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. There were big stone statues, stone seats for the chieftains, and stone tables where justice was done. There were big stones to commemorate the deaths of important people. In this 1915 photo, such a stone is hauled upwards. The story has it that 525 people took three days to erect this stone in the village of Bawemataloeo.
