These small stone pebbles or slabs with engravings are the Micropetroglyphs

Specimens of micropetroglyphs, have been found in the central and Andean states. These appear in anthropological literature, in tales about magical incantations, and their use as calendars or coins is also described. In addition, tribal informants describe their application by shamans in order to attract rain.
