Easter Island Lovers
The Moai statues, also known as ‘Easter Island heads’, are monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people between the years 1250 and 1500 CE. They are located on Easter Island, or ‘Rapa Nui’ as the indigenous call it, a Polynesian island in the Pacific Ocean.
Archaeologists suggest that the statues were symbols of religious and political power. But to the people who erected them they were actual repositories of sacred spirit, believed to be charged by a magical spiritual essence called mana. Our representation of this phenomenon depicts an Easter Island couple in the spirit of love and togetherness.
Cast in frostproof casting stone the Easter Island Lovers can remain outdoors all year round. This fine piece is 40cm wide, 55cm high, and weighs about 30kg. The colour is weathered sandstone.
Actual colours can differ from the photos. Because all our ornaments are cast and finished by hand no two are exactly alike.
Because of the size and weight of this piece we’re unable to ship it, but you are welcome to collect it from our workshop in the Netherlands.
