Why Were the Easter Island Heads Made?

Answer

When Dutch Admiral Jacobs Roggeveen arrived, there were two tribes on the island. The first was the Ha-nau-aa-epe, which was distinct because of their long ears. They were tall, white-skinned and with red hair. The other tribe was the Ha-nau-mo-moko, which had short ears. It is normally assumed that statues were created by the short-eared tribe, under the command of the long-eared people, portraying the latter.

After almost a century onwards, the origin of almost a thousand stone heads remains nevertheless, extremely difficult to assess. All statues gaze towards the land, even though many of the statues stand very close towards the sea. They measure between two and eleven metres high and all have the same appearance: a long shaped head with an upper torso, a chin and long ears, with arms along the body or arms that rest on the stomach.
