Statues of Easter Island , Chile


Statues of Easter Island (10th - 16th Century) Easter Island, Chile
CHILE
Discovered on Easter Sunday, 1722 by Dutch explorer Jakob Roggeveen, this
collection of 25 meter-high stone sculptures still puzzles historians and
archaeologists as to its origins. It is believed that a society of
Polynesian origin settled here in the 4th century and established a unique
tradition of monumental sculpture. Between the 10th and 16th centuries, they
erected the enormous stone figures, known as the Moai, which have long
fascinated the entire world and endowed this island with a mythical atmosphere.
