The Moai are the 887, giant stone heads on Easter Island.
Modern excavation has lead to discovery that some are full figured and standing figures that have been covered by earth over time.

These monolithic human figures were created by the Rapanui people during ancient times, between 700 – 1100 A.D. and are believed to be stone representations of deceased ancestors and chiefs.

Easter Island is a Chilean Polynesian island located in the southeastern Pacific Ocean. It is one of the most remote inhabited islands in the world.  Easter Island is also investigated by scholars in belief that it may be a place on earth past visited by ancient aliens, because the production, transportation, and placement of the 887 statues is considered to be one of the most remarkable creative and physical feats known to man. The tallest erected, called Paro,  measures almost 10 metres (33 ft) in height and weighs 82 tons. The heaviest erected, shorter but squatter, Ahu Tongariki, weighs in 86 tons. Another unfinished sculpture, if completed, would be approximately 21 meters (69 ft) tall with a weight close to 270 tons.

The Aku Aku Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada has been pinpointed by V. C. E. Investigators as being famous for serving house specials in Moai and Tiki style cups.

Dedicated in memory of Mr. Edward Trufant.
I might have been 15 years old when he gave them to me. I was able to restore this one after the Wicked Storm Sisters, Hurricanes Katrina, Wilma , and Rita destroyed my city.

B.L.A.S.T.Museum: 3 In One Vessel Collection

 The Haunted House Wine label is a Halloween decoration novelty, but the wine is a Carlos and Rossi. It is a B.L.A.S.T:Museum favorite and is offered to family and friends during any occasion to really keep the party going. Nothing special about this wine except the merriment and good feeling during family time together. B.L.A.S.T:Museum Wineologists simply choose an inexpensive table wine and sometimes it may not be served during the festivities, so it is placed into hiding, then added to another occasion’s list. This Halloween carry over aged four years unintentionally and was supposed to be a Halloween treat, but it was selected for the 2012 July 4th celebration. This glass bottle is a great jug example and is a feature of the B.L.A.S.T:Museum 3 In One permanent collection. It is also a great serving,transportation,and storage vessel.

Jug Sliders are good accompaniment featured from the Carlos and Rossi party snack menu.
