Easter Island: Moai
Photograph by Jim Richardson, National Geographic

Easter Island is set apart by the wondrous stone statues, called moai, that silently watch over the island’s serene landscape. They were carved from locally quarried tufa—a soft volcanic stone—between 800 and 1722, when a Dutch explorer discovered the island. The average moai is 14 feet (4 meters) tall and weighs ten tons.
