Easter Island Stone Heads
The Mysterious Stone Heads
Archaeologist William Mulloy states, "The Easter Island Stone Heads are a place of peace and power." (Walters). The Easter Island Stone Heads, The Moai, are very mystical we don't know a whole lot about them. We keep finding new information about them and understanding the stone heads a little bit more. These baffling structures stump us in their history, how they were constructed, and also the details of the stone heads that's why archeologists are so focused on them they want to uncover all of its secrets.
How Were They Made
We might not know a lot about the construction of The Moai Stone Heads but what we do know is very mysterious and interesting. The heads were created around 1000 A.D and many believe that the heads were constructed over a 500 year period (Linn). It was also thought to have been built to honor ancestors and gods (Easter island; stones,history.com). The architect of the heads was the Rapa Nuvi people (Walters).
The Moai Stone Heads
These stone heads might be the most puzzling structure out there and we still aren't sure on who made them, how they constructed, or even why they were made. We might never find out but so far we have found symbols on the stone heads and also that they have bodies we are getting closer and closer to answering all these questions. So why don't we just wait and see what else we will discover about the Easter Stone Heads?
