Meet the Moai at the Easter Island

On one of the most isolated places on the planet is one of the mysteries that man has failed to solve. Who, how and why a series of huge statues, called moai, made of solid rock were created, and how they were transported and erected at various places around the island. Carved out of volcanic rock between the 11th and 14th centuries by Polynesian settlers, they have long, unsmiling faces, hawk-like noses and brooding brows. Located 3,800km west of mainland Chile, this treeless island is dotted with volcanoes and fringed with sandy beaches.
