Moai of Easter Island

This short film in the Pacifica series by British traveler Simon Bradfield introduces the mysterious moai or living faces of Easter Island. Around 1,000 of these giant stone statues remain on Rapa Nui today, nearly half of them in the quarry at Rano Raraku. All were toppled by the islanders themselves soon after the arrival of Europeans, but many have since been re-erected by archaeologists.

UPDATE: The video was removed.
