Long Description:
Compilation of Easter Island statues. Standing naked waist-length figure, with flat forehead, sharp elongated nose, long chin, and large flat ears. Carved hands are joined on stomach below the belly-button. There are rebar metal hooks on the back of the sculpture.

"Easter Island statues known as moai adorn the back lawn and the walking track area of the campus. They are nine ton concrete replicas. Western Wyoming Community College's own Dr. Charles Love teamed up with artist Gregory Gaylor to design and carve the mold used to cast them. The great mystery of Easter Island has been how the Islanders moved the statues from their remote quarry to the huge ceremonial centers along the coast." (visit link)
