"New photographs reveal what lies beneath the surface of Easter Island, one of the most remote places in the world -- the carved bodies of the island's 887 famous guardians.


Most people think of the 63-square-mile Pacific island’s silent stone sentinels as simple heads. But the heads all have bodies -- and a backstory that's only now being pieced together, explained Jo Anne Van Tilburg, director of the Easter Island Statue Project.

The story goes that the descendants of both versions populate the Earth today with, inevitably, one version ruling the other…"

Ha, the site "the Easter Island Statue Project" is

Think Fox news would check there source better for broken links.

Another link: Easter Island heads have bodies!??

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Good find and way better pics of these statues.
It was always my hypothesis to say "Hey, why dont we see whats under the heads of these statues instead of thinking they were placed there at some point in time."

Did not read the link, but curious... Did they get buried by the natives, by erosion, or by sinking into the ground? They look pretty deep in some of the pics.

It is known about their bodies for long, Maybe they were older then tought...maybe they are not done by settlers what Europeans find there at all,

Trees were felled extensively on Easter island and I checked it out on google earth and there was soil erosion indicated so yeah erosion seems valid. A lot of Moais are just strewn about the island though on top of the ground.

Yup,  i've read that they are buried at such depths due to run off on the sloped terrain.   ..and  civil strife was the cause of many of the toppled Moai .   I'm still fascinated by the hand positions of the Moai.  The most natural position for human hands, on human arms, is downward and slightly forward at the sides.  The upheld frontal position is significant.

This is very exciting news! It's awesome that Jo Ann Van Tilburg had the curiousity to look below the surface appearance of things. Maybe after this is over she will get to work on the mysterious rongorongo script; those mysterious and since vanished 'talking boards' of Easter Island.

I don't know about the "End times" theory, but isn't it interesting how all of these things are coming to a head.  From mystery behind the these heads to economic collapse.  More UFO sightings than ever in history, to the convenient finding of another Mayan temple that conveniently houses a reprieve from their original calendar ending.   Just sayin, it's kind of interesting.  
What is next?  Actual Bigfoot footage?  I mean, real and clear footage.
