Description

Moai are monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people on Easter Island in eastern Polynesia between the years 1250 and 1500.
The Moai are chiefly the living faces (aringa ora) of deified ancestors (aringa ora ata tepuna).
Their minimalist style related to forms found throughout Polynesia.
Moai are carved in relatively flat planes, the faces bearing proud but enigmatic expressions.
The human figures would be outlined in the rock wall first, then chipped away until only the image was left.
Made from MGO
