Statues of Temechea-Tohua, French Polynesia Several statues give the feeling that they are wearing the exposure suits. Nowadays we can see about several decades of the reptilian. They all are made of stone and have different sizes. It is still a mystery who made it and for what. Some researchers suppose that in the ancient times the aliens could lend their spaceships on this island. Also, they say that they got into communication with locals.

For aborigines such meetings played a great role. They could worship the aliens, believing they are gods. The sculptures are not so old – only 1 000 years. Locals tell the researchers a lot of breathtaking legends about the sculptures. More than that, they say how their island was visited by strange creatures from the space. Aliens gave locals a lot of useful knowledge. In return for that, people made their numerous sculptures. Next - Column of Chandragupta
