Inside the shrine were big-horned figurines and ash-colored molded figures, which happen to be the deities being worshipped by the group.
Also found at the shrine were baskets, broken eggs and left over of sacrifice as well as metal gongs, which was probably used to wake up the numerous deities placed in the room.
