What gave the eastern island of Maoi 13-ton shelters?
The Easter Island Maoy statues of the Rapanui are one of my interests in the American population. It is as if the moon itself were not impressing enough that a new document in the Journal of Archaeological Science deals with how this pre-industrial community puts 13-ton caps or pukaos on these statues.
This hat is made of 6-7 feet round, crimson vulcanic stone, named scaria. Whilst their forms differ, some are cylindric and others conic, all have one thing in Common. On the underside of these caps all have a notch that fits the round tip of the statuehead.
The Rapanui couldn't have just pushed the hat onto the statues, because that would have broken the wheel well. That means that the caps must have been leveraged and dropped onto the top of the sculpture, possibly over rock and floor platforms with which the Rapanui once rolled huge rock caps to the top of their icons.
Huge Easter Island statues are carved with mystery.
The Easter Island statue excavations pose further riddles. Recent pictures have been taken from the study of the East Island icon statues in 2012, which show that the world-famous minds are indeed linked to giant stones coated with uncommon icons that the scientists believe could represent them.
This latest finding has added even more issues to the never-ending mystery of these unbelievable statues. Histians know very little about the civilization that made the statues of Easter Island. Finally, these humans and their offspring became known as the Rapa Nui. Rapa Nui were living on the coast of Easter Island, known as a lively and ever-growing town.
But in the 16th c. the number of Rapa Nui began to fall drastically. The Easter Island population is thought to have experienced a flawless earthworm due to logging, servitude by Europeans and disastrous pox outbreaks. In a few years the antique village had vanished and with it the mysteries of the 887 huge statues of stones, named Moais, which are a monument to the company that built them so many years ago.
They are not known why they were constructed, whether they were intentionally laid to the shoulder, whether their special arrangement and detail are important and how they were transported on the isle. In view of the islanders' Polish inheritance, it is a valid belief that the Rapa Nui created a similar community to that which prevailed in their ancestral lands.
That means that the statues probably reflect the forefathers of the high-ranking personalities within our societies who were set up on the islands as Sentinels. Given that the Rapa Nui Fellowship was largely developed in seclusion, it is possible that these statues had a meaning that historicists and archeologists will find incredible, if not even impossibly, ever to really comprehend.
After all, the secret of Easter Island statues can turn out to be everlasting.
