Event Type: Adult Programs
Date: 9/14/2017
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
Description:
 Due in large part to the isolation of Rapa Nui (Easter Island), a unique culture developed, including the 900 giant stone statues called Moai found along its rugged coastlines and Rano Raraku quarries. Retired earth science teacher, Len Sharp will seek to answer questions such as: what were the source and type of rock used to construct the Moai; what kind of tools was used to sculpture the giant statues; how were the statues moved form Rano Raraku to their distant platforms (Ahu); how were the statues placed in their upright positions; and of course; what purpose did they serve?
