Its stone giants on average stand 13 feet high and weigh 14 tons, large heads on male torsos fashioned after the penis, carved from volcanic ash, called moai. They stand on sacred pedestals called ahu. Do not walk on these platforms. Most all of the moai are erected around the coast and face inland towards their villages with their backs to the sea.
