Poster of Various Moai This poster shows the relative size of various statues, their names and locations. No two statues are alike, and the style evolved over time. All but one represent a RapaNui clan leader from the hips up. Only the most recent statues include a topknot. The statues are called "moai" and were carved to be placed on platforms (ahu). A life size human figure is shown in several places for a sense of scale.
