I'm glad you are posting these. It looks as though the rocks were carved then pigment used?
The cavities(?) are nowadays filled with some kind of paint, to make it more visible. It´s a nice feeling when you move your hands over the surface.

Whether or not the carvings originally were filled with pigment, I don´t think anybody really knows. If I come across some information on that, I´ll pass it over
