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.

The Easter Island heads also have BODIES  The enduring image in the public's mind of the mysterious heads on Easter Island is simply that - heads. So it comes as quite a shock to see the heads from another angle - and discover that they have full bodies, extending down many, many feet into the ground of the island.

Even NASA cannot explain it. It’s best to gaze in wonder at the sliding rocks on this dry lake bed in Death Valley National Park. Racetrack Playa is almost completely flat, 2.5 miles from north to south and 1.25 miles from east to west, and covered with cracked mud.
