I've read about them, and I've seen close-up photos of them. But, honestly, this is the most impressive photo I've ever seen of them. It shows them as an army, ready to march, not as pottery statues. It feels active, almost threatening. Great shot!

Otroligt vilken idè och vilka resurser som lagts ner. Så blev det väl ett världsarv också (tror jag)eller åtminstone känt över hela världen. Plus sex grader här på morgonen och solen börjar titta fram.

I have wanted to see these ever since I saw them in the Smithsonian magazine. It is just so impressive.
