Easter Island Moai Head


Rapa Nui (Easter Island) is famous for its rows of moai, towering figures of deified ancestors that were carved from volcanic tuff rock in quarries, then moved to a platform on the water's edge. This polyclay statue has an antique bronze look and measures 11.5 x 13 x 16.3 inches.

There are 887 moai on Rapa Nui, where they are revered, even considered by some islanders to be sacred. Since the Museum's moai cast was featured in the movie Night at the Museum, it has become a very popular exhibit.
