The Moai “heads” on Easter Island have bodies. Because some of the statues are set deep into the ground, and because the heads are disproportionately large, many people tend to think of them as just big heads. But the bodies are there — in many cases, underground. 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.

Easter island question: "Why had you not figured out that at least some of the statues have bodies?"

In the late 1880s, the body of a 16-year-old girl was pulled from the Seine. She was apparently a suicide, as her body showed no marks of violence, but her beauty and her enigmatic smile led a Paris pathologist to order a plaster death mask of her face. In 1958 the anonymous girl’s features were used to model the first-aid mannequin Rescue Annie. Though the girl’s identity remains a mystery, her face, it’s said, has become “the most kissed face of all time.”

Maybe this isn’t a newsflash to anyone but me, but, um, the Moai “heads” on Easter Island have bodies. Because some of the statues are set deep into the ground, and because the heads on the statues are disproportionately large, many people tend to think of them as just big heads. But the bodies (generally not including legs, though there is at least one kneeling statue) are there — in many cases, underground.

Slave auction. Look at the scars and welter on his body. Horrible.

This is the body of a man who died over 5000 years ago, preserved through direct contact with the scorching sands of Upper Egypt. His corpse was put into a shallow pit curled-up as if in sleep. His grave-goods were placed alongside him, and he was then covered with sand. The hot sand absorbed all the water in his body, preventing bacteria from causing decay. Ginger’s excellent state of preservation - even down to his hair, hence ‘Ginger’ - fulfills one of the crucial E

Life jackets were one of the leading causes of death on the Titanic. If a person jumped overboard from 10 feet up or higher, their necks would be broken upon impact with the water. (They may have been the lucky ones). This life jacket was cut from a body after being in the ocean for many days. Recovery workers did not want to touch the bodies, so the life jackets were removed by cutting the straps. The bodies were then weighted and the unidentifiable were returned to the sea.
