Japanese high school students and carvers from Chile pose before a new 'Moai' statue (back C), modelled on the mysterious carvings at Easter Island, as it was set at the tsunami-devastated town of Minamisanriku in Miyagi prefecture, northern Japan on May 25, 2013. The giant present, a three-meter tall stone statue, crossed the ocean from Chile as the town's original was destroyed in the March 11 quake-sparked tsunami disaster in 2011.
