Ahu Tahai, Easter Island, Chile by Daniel Burton

Ahu Tahai, Easter Island, Chile

Colours of Easter Island:
Just north of Hanga Roa (Easter Island’s only modern settlement) lie the remnants of the Tahai Ceremonial Complex. The important Rapa Nui site was restored by William and Emily Mulloy between 1968-1974 - they loved it so much they are buried here. This photograph shows the lone moai Ko Te Riku contemplating another magnificent Pacific sunset. Ko Te Riku is fortunate; he was put back on his ahu, as well as being given new coral eyes and a red scoria pukao (a headdress).
