Easter Island Bodies

The famous heads of Easter Island also have bodies, excavations have shown. Here are some great pictures of the statues excavated so far, along with people beside them to give an idea of size.

No one knows who carved the giant statues, which all face the same way, nor why. In fact, no one knows how they were even created. Discovering that the heads also have bodies attached to them adds a whole new facet to this ages-old mystery.
