Why You Should Vote For The Moais

We think you should vote for Easter Island one of the Twenty-One finalist to be one of the 7 wonders ‘Wonder Of The World,’ because the statues stand for authority and power, both religious and political. The statues are 14 feet 6 inches and weigh over 14 tons. They were hand crafted by man from the volcanic rocks, which were 63 square miles in size and from three extinct volcanoes ( raising to 1674 feet ). The island was found on Easter Sunday hence the name of the statues. Vote for thr Moais now, for the beauty of these carvings!
