I don't know about you, but I just knew that the Moai heads in Easter Island actually have bodies. The bodies are buried underground, and excavations have been done to do research on these hidden bodies of Moai.
Buried within the soil, the bodies are protected from erosion, unlike the heads. Which means the original carving on the statues are still clearly visible.
For those of us who are always amazed by the ancient mysteries... This is certainly one good news.
