There is a page where they compare the big Engineer-head in Prometheus with the stone-statues on the Easter Island.

I found the picture on this page:

Do you think that is where they got the inspiration from? Looking forward to your replies, this could be an interesting discussion.

Did you know that the inhabitants of Easter Island ruined the ecology of their island, destroying all the trees for the construction of these statues?


A great cultural heritage is often inseparable from madness. I think androids would be more sane. xDDD


Can we find parallels here with the engineers who, in their pride (or worship), destroyed their own world?

What about the olmec heads?

I can see parallels with EI and Olmec heads...especially the Olmec.

What If, the Easter Island statues are done to honor/represent Non-Engineers...perhaps Rivals to The Engineers?
That would explain why they look so Different from an Engineer.

Thoughts are stirring.

Leto: Maybe, that could be a possibility if they make a third prequel.

SuperAlien: I don't think that I've seen one of those before but thanks for pointing it out. That's interesting, it seems that the Olmecs was a early civilization in North America.
