Joy Cheung, TVIH member, will share her 2017 travel photos to Rapa Nui (Easter island), Chile. There are 887 monumental statues called moai, carved human figures with oversized heads. The moai were created by inhabitants during the 13th -16th centuries.

 

Easer Island (Rapa Nui), one of the world’s most isolated inhabited islands, is in the Pacific Ocean, 2,182 miles west of the Chilean coast. Easter Island is famous for its row of moai, towering figures of deified ancestors that were carved from volcanic rock in quarries, then moved to a platform on the water’s edge. 


Moai SI-WDC-001 statue is on display at the National Museum of Natural History in D.C. It was brought to the Smithsonian in 1887.
