Easter Island also known Rapa Nui, a thousand miles from other native islands which was discovered and developed by Polynesian explorers a hundred years ago. After the settlement, it intrigued archeologist for centuries. Especially a thousands of massive stone figures near the bay which was known to natives who instilled their ancestors’ spirits. But how did they moved and carved the relics that could last a lifetime? Arranging the statues into a sacred platform called Aho. The statues are the living face of their ancestors. The Muai was cut from volcanic tough, a poorest stone made from compressed ash. Almost statues were carved in Mount Reraku, a massive quarry beside of the island extinct volcanoes.
According to island folklore, the statues called Moai had simply walk to the place. The statues are littered around the quarry some of them are not yet finished and others are broken during the movement of figures to the sacred platform. But how cold prehistoric farmers, who had no metal tools could carves such amazing figures then moved an enormous statues without the use of wheels weighing close to 82 tons and up to 30 ft tall. Archeologists Terry Hunt and Carl Lipo are heavily influenced by Sergio Rapu theory; also an archeologist and a governor for 6 years of the island, stating the statues are moved upright position.
Terry and Carl will try to prove Rapu’s theory by making a precise replica of the statue and moved it upright with the help of small group of volunteers. To conduct the experiment the two archeologists only have two days and 26 volunteers to finish it. Throughout Polynesia, carved wooden stones are common but no other island can compare with the size or number of statues found in Easter Island.
