Bill writes “Here’s a build log of our Inflatable Moai project. We converted two Halloween lawn decorations into 9′ Moai for the Tiki Invasion show this past weekend @ the Mission Tiki Drive-in in Montclair, CA.”Link.

Wikipedia Moai are statues carved from compressed volcanic ash on Rapa Nui (Easter Island). The statues are all monolithic, that is, carved in one piece. They may weigh more than 20 tons and be more than 20 feet tall. The largest moai erected, “Paro”, was almost 10 metres high and weighed 75 tonnes. One unfinished sculpture has been found that would have been 21 metres tall and would have weighed about 270 tons.
