Product Description

Brought back from our trip to Easter Island, these little handmade volcanic rock Moai heads complete with Pukao (soft red stone topknot), are a beautiful and different addition to the living room mantle piece.

The immense Moai carvings are thought to represent the faces of deceased ancestors and chiefs of the different clans of RapaNui, and would stand to face inland, their constant gaze overlooking their clans land.

Size 15 cm tall x 5 cm wide.
