ZEN MAGNETS (@854) - Easter Island Head (Moai)

This was a tricky one to get the shape right ...

It started out as a stacked 36-ball hexagon alternating with 36-ball circles to create a solid cylinder. Balls were removed to form the brow, eye, cheek, and nose indentation. The nose was added. A wrapping layer was added below the nose to form the mouth and chin. The mouth was formed by removing a single row. The backside slight slant was created by removing layers. Finally, the crown and neck was added to finish off the design.
