Easter Island, Chile .. If you were to visit Easter Island without knowing what was on the 163 square kilometre island, it is likely that you would be more than a little intrigued – if not somewhat taken aback – by the 887 moai statues that inhabit the land. Built between 1110 and 1680 AD, the maoi statues are both beautiful and eerie and are said to have been built out of respect for the elders and deceased of tribes on the island.

Moai ~ monolithic human figures carved from rock on the Chilean Polynesian island of Easter Island between 1250 - 1500.  Almost all moai have overly large heads 3/5 the size of their bodies.   Production and transportation of the 887 statues are considered remarkable creative and physical feats. The tallest moai was almost 30 ft high, weighed 82 tons.
