Rapa Nui

Easter Island is a Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, at the southeasternmost point of the Polynesian Triangle. Easter Island is famous for its 887 extant monumental statues, called moai, created by the early Rapa Nui people.

Moai are monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people from rock on the Chilean Polynesian island of Easter Island between the years 1250 and 1500. Nearly half are still at Rano Raraku, the main moai quarry, but hundreds were transported from there and set on stone platforms around the island's perimeter. The moai are chiefly the living faces of deified ancestors.

Easter Island (aka: Rapa Nui, meaning “Big Rapa”) is famous for the almost 900 stone statues, called Moai, that are in the shape of human heads and simple bodies. These moai statues were created by the Rapanui people hundreds of years ago.
