- Curator's comments
- Context: The moai in this image, is of an unusual design, as it is a kneeling figure, with a beard, made from red Scoria from Puna Pau, but sits on Rano Raraku. It is possibly related to the Tangata manu cult, in which case it would be one of the last moai (figure carvings) ever made. The sculpture was discovered in 1956 by the Heyerdahl expedition.
People: The man in this image has not been identified, but is also photographed in Oc,A34.24and Oc,A34.29.
