Up until now I had believed that they faced out to see to perhaps ward off approaching invaders. Fascinating to read they face inland to perhaps guard the islanders. Hopefully one day I’ll see for myself. 😜

Thank you for the information, but IMO, the statues can remain on the island, undisturbed as much as possible.

How do they know how long it took to carve each one much less how many people worked on each one?

John New, BC (Before Christ) and AD (Anno Domini, meaning ‘In the year of the Lord’) are Christian terms. CE and BCE are considered more inclusive, though I’m not entirely sure why as Christ’s birth is still the determiner.

The ancients who "built" these statues were remarkable just as those who built the Pyramids through Egypt (not just the 2 Giza ones) and Stonehenge were. These structures are all mind-boggling when you think of what must have been involved in their construction.

Amazing! I personally think it disrespectful to remove them to museums to be put on display. We do not know their meaning for the people who labored so incredibly to produce them.
