Lots of theories, and the mystery continues … it’s an incredible trip to one of the most remote places on Earth. We traveled here with dear friends Bob & Joy Fuller. The statues (moai) were carved from soft volcanic stone between 800 and 1000 AD. The average Moai is 14ft tall and weighs 10 tons. The tallest, still in the quarry, is 68ft tall! How were they moved? It’s still a mystery.
