Panoramic View Of Easter Island

Beautiful panorama picture of Ahu Tongariki, the largest Ahu on Rapa Nui (Easter Island). Its Moai (monolithic human figures carved from rock) were toppled during the island's civil wars and in the twentieth century the Ahu was swept inland by a tidal wave.It has since been restored and has 15 Moai including an 86 tonne moai that was the heaviest ever erected on the island.
