Fallen Moai

Fallen Moai

The great mystery is how and why the moai were created. Due to the lack of writing, there are no records to explain the mystery. The moai proberbly represented tribal ancestors and were created to watch over a village. However, the island became tragicly overpopulated. Resources were scarce and wars broke out. During this time, the moai were pushed over by rival tribes. All of them were pushed over, and any that are standing today have only been stood back up in modern times.
