NOMOLI or POMDO STONE CARVED FIGURE – Sierra Leone – AFRICA
The nomoli or pomdo stone carvings are of an unclear origin and have been discovered buried around southern Sierra Leone. The figures were first described by Europeans in 1852 when missionary G; Thompson diverged a group of them on the site of a destroyed village. Most of these figures were made from soapstone. When the early explorers inquired about these figures, the people expressed the belief that they were made by spiritual beings.
