The most prominent landmark is the great red stone monolithic column built in front of the ahu. This is reminiscent of the pre-Inca statues-columns found in the Andes. It was unearthed in 1956 by an American archaeologist, William Mulloy. Dr. Mulloy concluded that it was possibly a female moai based on the details of the thin arms and hands, small breasts and pronounced navel.
