Just a short theory about why the statue was built.
I know a lot of people like to think that the Egyptians got too close to the electromagnetism/wherever the Orchid would be built, and built the statue to help with infertility problems. I like to think they did it to praise the Gods of fertility, not ask for their help. If you remember Jin was sterile and couldn't have kids, but the Island fixed him, maybe something similar happened to a bunch of Egyptians. --GrinningTurtle 20:50, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
