Jang Seungs

The "Easter Island" type heads are actually Korean Jang Seungs (wishing statues) from the 2002 World Cup in Seoul. It appears that they're now perhaps cast concrete of the originals. Still pretty cool.

Easter Island Totem Poles

In front of the Palace Inn Motel on HWY 101 there are several strange Easter Island-ish heads carved from giant logs. One has a soccer ball in its mouth, another seems to have an Asian theme.
