Hoa Hakananai'a - Paperback

2004, ISBN: 9780714150246

ID: 9780714150246

Hoa Hakananai'a, or 'stolen/hidden friend', was discovered at the impressive ceremonial village of Orongo, Rapa Nui (Easter Island), Polynesia, in 1868. It is not known precisely when this basalt figure was carved, but by AD 1000-1100 similar-sized statues, all called moai, were being quarried in the volcanic ash of Rano Raraku. Nearly a thousand moai were produced - all sacred icons exemplifying the Polynesian concern with ancestry, the gods, life and death. This book tells the story of Hoa Hakananai'a: an imposing, intriguing figure of superb workmanship, it was the focal point of initiation rites, and is layered with late relief carvings that relate it to exotic birdman rites.
