A place of mystery, a place of wonder, a place of intrigue, a place of enchantment… That’s Rapa Nui to a tee. The why question is the easy one – they were built to order, a commercial enterprise. The how question, that’s a very different question! So many theories, maybe none of them are right. But isn’t that the reason why the place has such a sense of wonder about it.
This image was shot long after the other photographers had left. The Moai that was laying flat seemed to be the source of the sun on this magical morning on Rapa Nui.
