Easter Island stone heads have bodies too

Pretty crazy this was JUST discovered considering that people have been touring this Island for centuries to look at them. They are like 40 feet tall!!

The really cool thing is since being buried, all the carvings, tattoos, and shit are all preserved perfectly.

Nobody knows. Tsunami, volcano, time? Still a mystery but cooler.

I wonder how much the total length of the statues would be? They only got up to the upper thigh. Good find!
