AHU MOAI

Placing the red stone headpiece on top of the ahu moai must have been more difficult than setting up the statues themselves. These stones may have been roughly rounded before they were moved from the quarry, and then shaped once they were in position. The largest of them must have been secured in place before the statue was raised.
