Easter Island, Chile.

Rapa Nui (Easter Island) Moai (The Statues that Walked: Unraveling the Mystery of Easter Island by Terry Hunt and Carl Lipo)

✮ The Moai “heads” on Easter Island have bodies. Because some of the statues are set deep into the ground, and because the heads are disproportionately large, many people tend to think of them as just big heads. But the bodies are there — in many cases, underground. What’s even more interesting — there are petroglyphs (rock markings) that have been preserved below the soil level, where they have been protected from erosion. Michael Massaro

The Rapa Nui (Easter Island) heads have bodies! While this isn't news in the Archaeology world, the discovery of hieroglyphs on the bases sort of is. Really interesting stuff!
