Chile's Rapanui Island is one of the most lonely places on Earth between the vast South Pacific Sea, 3,700 kilometers from the South American coast, 1,000 kilometers from the nearest human island. When the island was found, there were two types of inhabitants on the island, one of whom was a hairy pelican who was indeed in the primitive period; secondly, sculptures carved with boulders representing a highly developed civilization.

The islanders now have no technique to sculpt stone statues with such high art form, and no maritime techniques to cross thousands of kilometers of sea. People ask: Who made these stone statues? Who do they work for? What is the purpose? All of which makes this island covered with a veil of secret.


The history of discovering Rapanui Island has not been long. In 1722, the Dutch first set foot on the island and named it. It was April 5, right on Easter and they named it "Easter Island". The name Rapanui means stone statue island named after the islanders.

Later, the Spanish and European explorers repeatedly set foot on the island for many years. What makes the most adventurous explorers, on this small and lonely desert island still inhabited. More importantly, there are hundreds of giant stone statues on the island, these stone statues known as "Moai" stone statues by the people themselves. Usually, the nose is slightly upturned, the lips are slightly thick, the forehead is wide and slightly raised, the large earlobes droop. On the body touches the flying bird, along with the arms hanging on either side. All of those features make the stone statue look unique, making people just glance at it and get it. In addition, some statues still have caps of round cylinders, the natives call it "Paucaau", far from looking like a pink crown, making stone statues more respectful and lofty nuances.


Of the 600 statues, only about 30 were honored to wear red hats, the number of statues were divided: the South East of the island had 15, the North Island had 10 and the West Island had 6. Stone statues with red hats look like nobles in popular statues.

The stone statues praised by the living people have become symbolic of the small lonely island on the horizon of the sea. But when praising statues, people wonder: What does a stone statue represent? Aboriginal people on the island use rudimentary tools, how can they create such statues?

While learning about the origin, archaeologists and geologists only received answers from the islanders that no one knew anything about the history of stone statues, nor did they like us. participate in creating statues.

The giant stone statues on Rapanui Island are being visited by travelers, memoirs, diaries, descriptions, ... and become increasingly mysterious. These stone statues have a uniform shape: human figures have long, small faces and dull colors, proving that they are processed in a unified pattern. The special style that the stone statue represents is nowhere to be found, proving to be a product of the island itself, not a foreign influence. But there are also scholars who think that their shaping is somewhat similar to the stone statue of the Anglican and Maya cultural relics in Tinacacoa Mexico. Did the ancient Mexican culture affect it while Mexico was thousands of kilometers away from Rapanui Island, was it capable?

There is no possibility because: These statues are small, they weigh about 2.5 tons, they weigh about 50 tons, and some have hats. The stone helmet is also a heavy object up to tons, how have they been removed by stone and cast operators, using a way to transport to distant places to erect so stubbornly . Moreover, several centuries ago, the islanders did not know about iron.

So who made the stone statues on the island while the people on the island are also incapable?

Archaeologists analyzed the layout of giant statues on the island and they discovered that the mining sites were in the Ranobo Range. Tens of thousands of cubic meters of hard rock were removed, all over the place scattered with crushed stones, the giant stone statues after being completed were moved to a far away place. On the "construction site", there are still hundreds of unworked stones and unfinished statues. One of them was miraculous, the face of the stone statue was finished, but the back of the head was still attached to the rock. In fact, it is only a matter of time to separate the statue from the mountain, but its author does not do so; apparently they suddenly found out something and hurried away.


Launching the eye to the entire "site" to exploit the stone is a massive scene, one cannot imagine what happened that caused all stonemen to pull apart. On the "construction site", pieces of broken stone, crushed stones were scattered around, like footprints running in chaos. On those pieces of stone also left a deep chisel and splattered stones all over the place, proving that the "site" is full of joyful and enthusiastic work.

Works at different levels of progress on the site such as stopping time traces there. So what happened on the island?

Volcanic eruption? because the island is formed by this volcano itself. However, geologists believe that Rapanui Island is naturally a volcanic island, but the volcano has long been turned off, before the arrival of human species on the island and it has been stable since then. Or if the stalk of the wave holds, or something that makes the site stop. The inhabitants of the island were accustomed to the turbulent scene, certainly not because of the panic but panic. And if possible, after the ear dies, work can return. But they did not do so.

Why is that? Why this huge stone statues is a mystery. Why is it a mystery that the stone field suddenly stops everything.

Many scientists have studied 600 scattered statues on the island and the scale and topography in places where the stately quarry site said that such workload requires 5,000 healthy workers. strong can do. They conducted, experimented, carved a medium-sized humanoid statue, found that there must be more than ten workers working for a year. Using a wooden roller set to slip away is almost the only way to solve the transport problem on the island. Moreover, the original transport method could bring huge objects to any corner of the island. Obviously, this method requires a lot of labor, while Mr. Jacobire Rugen arrives at the island, he said that there is no tree on the island. So it is not possible to use a wooden roller to transport that giant stone statue.

So how are those statues transported on the island?

In addition, among the stone statues on the island, there are many stone statues. Stone hat projections weighing from 2 to 10 tons, this is another problem, to bring those stone hats to the head of giant stone, at least must have crane equipment. There are no trees on the island, nor the wood for rollers nor any materials to make the crane.

Next is 5,000 healthy labor to eat, how to live? During that period of ancient history, there were only a few hundred aborigines on the island, they ate dewy wind like a primitive man, so there was no food that provided 5,000 laborers with food. The bark on the island, growing food crops, the graphics with fish and shrimp floating in the sand cannot satisfy their lowest living needs.

At present, there are only 1,800 people on the island, many of them also rely on land supply.

Perhaps the religious forces that compel the islanders to create these world wonders. But the islanders are primitive people who have no religious beliefs yet. It was not until the 19th century, when the French missionaries came to evangelize, that they gradually absorbed the Roman religion. The stone statues standing by the sea represent the religion, but even the people on the island do not understand anything.

The female captain of the survey team of the museum of Britain Scoxơbe Romei, touched and vague in her memoirs "... because the atmosphere on the island makes us feel that it used to exist in the past. nowadays, it has lost a massive plan with an infinite atmosphere, but what is it in the end? And what is it for? "
