Listing #: 12822722

It is one of the most isolated islands in the world but 1200 years ago a double-hulled canoe filled with seafarers from a distant culture landed upon its shores. Over the centuries that followed a remarkable society developed in isolation on the island. For reasons still unknown they began carving giant statues out of volcanic rock. These monuments, known, as "moai" are some of the most incredible ancient relics ever discovered. The people of Easter Island called themselves the Rapa Nui. Where did they come from and why did they disappear? Science has learned much about the enigma of Easter Island and has put to rest some of the more bizarre theories, but questions and controversies remain.

This chap is Colin's interpretation of an 'Easter Island Head' made from aerated concrete, plastered, painted and ready for the garden!

He stands 20cm x20cm x55cm and weighs 9kg.

Pickup or possible delivery between Whitianga-Hamilton. Please ask via Q&A.

Please note - this chap is not suitable for posting!

I have a stall at the local market from time to time, selling these and other creations such as candle holders and smaller sculptures - I have a few others listed - take a look!
