Moai Figure, Viña del Mar, Chile

Moai , or mo‘ai, are monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people on Easter Island in eastern Polynesia between the years 1250 and 1500.

This figure stands in front of a Museum in Viña del Mar. Moai are carved in relatively flat planes, the faces bearing proud but enigmatic expressions.
