A LITTLE EASTER ISLAND HISTORY
Easter Island is famous for the half-buried heads (known as moai) that covers roughly 64 square miles of the island. Located in the South Pacific, the island was annexed from Chile in the late 19th century.
The earliest inhabitants were known as Rapa Nui, and the island was named Paaseiland (Easter Island) by Dutch explorers. Today, the island is a tourist destination known primarily for hundreds of giant stone figures that date back centuries.
The statues reveal their creators to be master craftsmen and engineers and are distinctive among other stone sculptures found in Polynesian cultures.
Averaging 13 feet high, and with a weight of 13 tons, the enormous stone busts were made of consolidated volcanic ash and placed on top of ceremonial stone platforms. The statures that remain today were likely built by the inhabitants in the 700-850 A.D. and again in 1050-1680.
There has been much speculation into their purpose and how they were constructed and transported around the island.
