“The Giant Head have Bodies?”

Easter Island Heads Rubber Stamp



The “giant head” moai statues on Easter Island have bodies!

This is absolutely incredible. Apparently, the 887 monolithic human figures carved from rock on Easter Island – known as moai, are familiar to many people through iconic images to be either just heads or a combination of heads and shoulders only. And that the heads on the statues are disproportionately large in comparison to their bodies and the circumstance that the bottoms of some of the statues are set deep into the ground.

Although many viewers are surprised to learn the moai actually do have bodies, that information is not a recent discovery. Many of the moai are situated fully above ground and are therefore displayed in their entirety, and some of them even sport arms and red hats.
