Easter Island, Buried Moai at Rano Raraku, 1997 - Most photographs one sees of Easter Island's Moai (stone scuptures) show a standing row of them. What was more incredible to me was Rano Raraku. In thiis Easter Island site, there are many Moai which have yet to be unearthed. What makes them amazing is that some, based on the size of the head sticking above the ground, are believed to be far taller than those which are standing. This photograph shows some of the heads sticking above the ground.
