Photographer's Note

Hi,
Today, a picture from Eastern Island also called Rapa Nui or Isla de Pascua.
Eastern Island is on the Pacific Ocean at 4000 kilometers from Chile. In this island, they are a lot of statues called "Moas". Moais are very big. Their size varies from 2.5 to 9 m, for an average weight of 14 tons. We don't know why "Pascuans People" makes more and more Moas and increasingly large. A lot of historians think that the construction of the statues use the resources of the island and kill this civilization.
Hope you like it.
