In most cases, the statues are monolithic, that is. carved from single stones, but some have ad- ditional. separate stone Pukau placed on the heads. The more than 600 known Moais are distributed around the entire island. - Most of the moai were carved out of the rock at Rana Raraku, where nearly 400 more moai remain in various stages of completion. - Although usually identified as "heads", many of the moai have shoulders, arms, and torsos, which have become buried over the years. The meaning of the moai is still unclear, and many theories surround these statues. 6.9) LEANING TOWER OF PISA A dramatically leaning tower in the city of Pisa in Italy, built as a bell lower for the cathedral of the city: the tower dates from the twelfth century. Soon after its construction. the foundation sank, causing the tower to lean. Closed to the public in I990, the tower was reopened in the early twenty-first century after engineers re- duced the rate of inclination by about sixteen inches. The height of the tower is 55 metres from the ground. its weight is estimated at 14,500 tonnes. The current in— _ clination is about 5.5 degrees. The tower has 296 steps.
