Fodor's Review

These seven stoic moai—believed by some to represent explorers sent on a reconnaissance mission by King Hotu Matu'a—are among the few that gaze out to sea, though researchers say they face a ceremonial site. Others say that the oral history of the explorers has been folded into stories about the moai, and that there is no connection between statues and explorers. Archaeologists William Mulloy and Gonzalo Figueroa restored the moai in 1960.
