Did you know that the moai were stone human heads on Easter Island. Well they are nobody really knows how they got there but there, are a lot of theroys about how they got there. Some people think just a single family built over 200 of them. Others think a whole tribe of people build them. The main question on the table is how and why were the moai built?
How were the the moai built? Why were they built? The moai were made out of volcanic ash which they collected on Easter Island when the volcano erupted. They used the ash to create hundreds of heads. (NPR.org) They used stone pick axes to carve the heads. (Livescience) The moai were actually built to represent human figures hundreds of years ago. Archeologist still really dont know why the moai we're built. (NPR.org)
