A unfinished Mohai at the "Mohai factory and distribution centre" at Rano Ruku, where
virtually all Mohais were cut out from the lava stone. From there they were transported
to all different sites on the island. Today one does not know exactly with which
method and how this was accomplished.

Some more unfinished Mohais, deeply imbedded in the earth, awaiting the final touches
before being moved to their final destinations.
