The Easter Island heads.

yeah, that's no newsflash.  i mean, the people in that photo are clearly out of the late '70s, early '80s.  

you can see how they were probably meant to look because a group of archeologists restored a few of them some years ago.  they stood on pedestals, had big striking eyes, and strange cylindrical hats on their heads.  they originally formed a perimeter around the island, facing out to sea like sentries.

I said, 'Father change my name.'
The one I'm using now it's covered up
with fear and filth and cowardice and shame."

Numbers 31:17-18 - Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.
