Easter Island Heads

The remote island is tucked away in the South Pacific Ocean and was once home to a Polynesian population, whose history remains mysterious. The Easter Island is home to many stone heads. They do however actually have bodies too! The tallest of the 887 Moai on the island is over 30 feet tall and weighs over 82 tons.Many of the sculptures were moved to different places around the island. They are said to represent ancestors and deities.
