Easter Island Moai Monolith Face Head Statue Sculpture For Sale
Easter Island Moai Monolith Face Head Statue SculptureProduct Code: W18Weight: 12 lbs (5.4 kg)Dimensions: 12.5"W x 13"D x 24.5"H (32 cm x 33 cm x 62 cm)Made of resinEaster Island Moai Monolith Face Head Statue Sculpture. Moai are monolithic human figures carved from rock on the Polynesian island of Rapa Nui (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 called ahu around the island's perimeter. Almost all moai have overly large heads three-fifths the size of their bodies. The moai are chiefly the 'living faces' (aringa ora) of deified ancestors (aringa ora ata tepuna). The statues still gazed inland across their clan lands when Europeans first visited the island, but most would be cast down during later conflicts between clans. The statues' production and transportation is considered a remarkable intellectual, creative, and physical feat. The tallest moai erected, called Paro, was almost 10 metres (33 ft) high and weighed 75 tonnes; the heaviest erected was a shorter but squatter moai at Ahu Tongariki, weighing 86 tons; and one unfinished sculpture, if completed, would have been approximately 21 metres (69 ft) tall with a weight of about 270 tons. Moai facing inland at Ahu Tongariki, restored by Chilean archaeologist Claudio Cristino in the 1990s. Our sculpture is Inspired by the 380 A.D. originals weighing more than 10 tons. Assumed to be depictions of local chiefs, heroes, or gods, the giant statues on Easter Island are some of the world’s most intriguing archeological artifacts. Cast in quality designer resin and finished to look like rough, chiseled stone, this exclusive replica sculpture adds a South Seas accent in your home or garden.Finish: stone finishTHIS ITEM IS BRAND NEW!PAYMENT: We accept PayPal, VISA, Master Card, American Express, Discover.
