To some, Easter Island is just a tiny bit of volcanic rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. To others, it is the source of one of mankind's greatest mysteries.

Others have large pieces of coral for eyes. Almost as mysterious as the statues themselves is the fact that so many of them were never finished.
