Scientists have discovered Moai Statue In Easter Island’s Volcano Crater. Geologists studied the place when the fire swept through the area last year. And upon discovering these Moai statues, scientists said there are chances of finding the tools used by Rapa Nui.
Discovery of Moai Statue from Easter Island
Archaeologist Jose Miguel Ramirez said this was the first time he understood they had found something in the basins. Further, he said there are chances that the lake was dried at some point in the past and the Rapa Nui were taking advantage of a dry place to move the statues ahead, and he thinks that they will be able to find more Moai Statue soon.
Easter Island, 2200 miles from the mainland, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Protected National Park. Researchers believe the Island’s first residents should arrive more than 1,000 years ago. And from around 400 to 700 years ago, they found monolithic human figures on the island.
Salvador Atan Hito – leader of the Ma’u Henua Indigenous community overseeing the site, has stated that the findings are part of the ancient history of the Rapa Nui People, so what they have seen today is a very, very important discovery.
The Moai Statue was half buried, and 1.5 meters now has undergone various tests to determine the current state of the statute.
