Add the Easter Island stone statue (Moai/Moyai) 🗿 symbol, 3D model or photo into Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Outlook. Both in Office for Windows and Office for Mac.
Moai 🗿 symbol represents the famous stone statues of Easter Island. It can be used to show a deadpan, ‘straight face’ or ‘stone face’ (literally) expression.
The name is usually spelled as “Moai” in English but the Unicode official name is “Moyai”, probably from the emoji’s Japanese origin.
Our Editor-in-Chief has been to Easter Island four times, so he has many fond memories of Moai and he’s gone beyond just the emoji to include examples of 3D moai models and one of his own photos.
How Moai 🗿 looks in different fonts.
In Windows only Segoe UI Emoji and Segoe UI Symbol fonts have the Easter Island statue symbol.
The Apple mac version (Apple Color Emoji font) is more realistic.

3D Moai Models
Wikipedia has a 3D model of a Moai in .STL format that can be downloaded and inserted into an Office document. Like all 3D models, you can swivel them around to any position you like. We recommend positioning the 3D model then taking a screenshot for regular use in the document or slide.
Here’s three examples of the same 3D model in different positions. The far-right one isn’t as ridiculous as it might seem, see the photo below.
There are better looking Moai 3D Models available like this one from Geoffrey Marchal.
