Happy Easter... Island

Easter Island: Moai
Almost 900 ancient, gigantic statues made of volcanic rock dot Easter Island. These "moai" date from between AD 1400 and AD 1600. The average moai weighs about 14 tons and is about 14 feet tall ; the biggest moai is an enormous 72-feet-long moai called "El Gigante" that is lying on the ground at the Rano Raraku Quarry.

And if you think that's impressive, you should see the bunny that left them!
