There has been a lot of mystery around the giant stone heads found all around the coastline of Easter Island. But as they have been studied further we have found that they are actually more mysterious than we thought even more so than when they were first discovered. Scientist have now found that the heads actually have full bodies the go deep into the ground.
The tallest one out of the 887 Moai stands at 30 feet tall and weighs a staggering 82 tons.
When completed the Moai is 70 feet tall and weighs a crazy 270 tons. I wonder how they are going to move that! There are many other scattered around the island and represent ancestors and gods.
Pretty interesting isn’t it?
