In context: In this part, Marlow finally arrives at the Inner Station. How does Marlow interpret the decorations? What does it remind him of?

Kurtz' home seems deserted, abandoned.
"A long decaying building on the summit was half buried in the high grass; the large holes in the peaked roof gaped black from afar; the jungle and the woods made a background. There was no inclosure or fence of any kind; but there had been one apparently, for near the house half-a-dozen slim posts remained in a row, roughly trimmed, and with their upper ends ornamented with round carved balls. The rails, or whatever there had been between, had disappeared."
I am still looking for a description of the decorations.
