The statues where actually carved from volcanic rock which was gotten(tierd brain needs a better word can't think) from the opening of a dormant volcano on the Island . Information courtesy of Ripley's Believe it or not  Blasts from the Past they actually weigh around 16-20 ton... still no mean feet to shift   ....

They were forged with ancient knowledge -- knowledge now lost to but a few.

Thefirstman:  They're supposed to be portraits of gods.

Kismit:  Exactly.  With what technology we have now, d'you think the master craftsmen in the world today can exactly reproduce this feat of wonder with primitive tools and w/in the time alloted?  I think not.  And you misunderstood my meaning.

  What was the allocated time please?
I'm no expert but If a culture has enough time to desimate an Island it probably has a reasonable amount of spare energy . The real mystery to easter Isalnd is why ? Why would a race of people care so little about the land and yet care so much for it's gods ?

Benjo thank-you aquired is a much tidier term  original.gif Link to previous thread

The people of Easter Island are a mystery and why they disappeared so mysterious is also a mystery to a certain extent like the island of Ronoak.  No one REALLY knows how long it took to craft such wonders.  However, estimated time is measured to the monument at Stonehedge.  And are just as baffling.

Indeed , Atlantis Rises. The people of Stonehenge are a mystery and why they disappeared so mysterious is also a mystery to a certain extent that happens to be a mystery among mysteries.
  Woodhenge Is yet another mysterious mystery. It lies on the outskirts of the mysterious Stonehenge and it makers are lost in the mysteries of time.
  TamponHenge is the third major henge of all mysterious henges that are veiled in the misty mystery that is history.
and lastly but not leastly, we have a mysterious henge known only as MeatHenge.
  "will that be all Moe?" you ask
"ah yes," Moe relplies " But the ultimate question to this mysterious mystery is:
What the @#$#@!!  IS a 'henge' anyways'????"
