Researchers have used Easter Island Moai replicas to show how they might have been “walked” to where they are displayed.

Kool but old news from 2012. It might actually work as its shows but Rapa Nui is in no way flat land.

Here's one that went ooops

They were moved down from the volcano quarry at Rano Raraku to the coast which was down hill but bumpy

This theory falls short of explaining how the Moai sank deeply into the soil.

Clearly, they "twerked" their way to their current state.

The one that are buried are only those located around the quarry site at Rano Raraku the ones along the coast are buried. The ones on the slop were covered by eroded soil from the extinct volcano once the vegetation was removed.A century or two of rain did the rest.
