"Moai" means statue. For some reason, I find these statues really halarious.

@mr rainbow: It a sort of hat. There are different sorts of Moais. Some of them have these hats. @sqmsonite: They're oriented this way, because these majestic statues are considered like protectors of the Pascuans (people from Rapa nui). They were facing the ocean because this way they could see any enemy or menace.

Let look at the photo above... yes, it is a tampered photo!!! Come on guy, let not do this... let's be true about the unexplained... it is clearly a photos that has been manipulated... I have seen the original and it didn't have that thing on top of it. Lighting and shading are wrong, whoever did it for sure done a poor job on it.
