Well I thought it interesting enough to share - whoever would have guessed? Well someone smarter than me obviously did.

What’s even more interesting — there are petroglyphs (rock markings) that have been preserved below the soil level, where they have been protected from erosion.
For more on the Easter Island statues, read more about the EISP, read their extensive research reports, and check out the Wikipedia page on Moai (which also discusses the fairly well-known fact that many of the statues used to have hats or possibly topknots, known as pukao).
Thought these two bits were especially interesting. Wonder if the markings will tell us more?

It's not surprising. Malcolm Fraser was very tall too. :wink
The last interglacial had less ice, higher sea levels, and warmer temperatures than this one. So, according to the evidence so far, human activity must have a COOLING effect.

Jeepers, they are big fellows aren't they?
I guess that someone will tell us what the markings mean. That would be very interesting.

Thanks for posting.
