Wish I had money burning a hole in my pocket. I guess I could take donations though? :D

Less than one third of all carved moai actually made it to a final ceremonial ahu site. Was this due to the inherent difficulties in transporting them? Were the ones that remain in the quarry (45%) deemed culturally unworthy of transport? Were they originally intended to remain in place on the quarry slopes? Or had the islanders run out of the resources necessary to complete the Herculean task of carving and moving the moai?

I would contend that some sort of cataclysmic event put an end to their operation. Perhaps a tidal wave/flood, or perhaps an invasion.

It's a great mystery that my never be solved. An important question to remember to ask, hey Queenie?


I suspect it was Union labor until contract negotiations came to a stand still and then the Gawds hired scab labor to do the completion and it all fell apart after that .
Life in the fast lane , surely make you lose your mind .
