maybe they were used under huge planks, and rolled- like ballbearings, in order to move huge boulders or perhaps even buildings or statues.

you can see similar, but smaller, spheres at Holes state park in MN on the St. Croix river north of Stillwater. The spheres were formed when receding flood waters swirled boulders around. creating holes in the rock and leaving a perfect sphere in each hole.

While touring Costa Rica a few years ago we were at a place where they had some of these huge spheres and our guide went over to one, turned to explain to the group of us; "Costa Rica has no army since dissbanding it back in (and he gave the date). But we do have balls!" Of course that got a roar of laughter from us all.
