Ethnography Department Temporary Register, 1861-1921 It is understood that large stone sculptures or moai were made on Rapa Nui between AD 1100 and 1600. The size and complexity of the moai increased over time, and it is believed that Hoa Hakananai'a dates to around AD 1200. It is one of only fourteen moai made from basalt, the rest are carved from the island’s softer volcanic tuff. This statue would have originally stood on a specially-built platform on the sacred site of Orongo. It would have stood with giant stone companions, their backs to the sea, keeping watch over the island. Its eyes sockets were originally inlaid with red stone and coral and the sculpture was painted with red and white designs, which were washed off when it was rafted to the ship, to be taken to Europe in 1869. Over a few hundred years the inhabitants of this remote island quarried, carved and erected around 887 moai. This sculpture bears witness to the loss of confidence in the efficacy of the ancestors after the deforestation and ecological collapse, and most recently a theory concerning the introduction of rats, which may have ultimately led to famine and conflict. Around AD 1500 the practice of constructing moai peaked, and from around AD 1600 statues began to be toppled, sporadically. The island’s fragile ecosystem had been pushed beyond what was sustainable. Over time only sea birds remained, nesting on safer offshore rocks and islands. As these changes occurred, so too did the Rapanui religion alter – to the birdman religion. A project to record and analyse the statue's carvings took place on 15th February 2012 in the Wellcome Trust Gallery. The techniques used were photogrammetry and polynomial texture mapping (PTM). It was conducted by Mike Pitts, Graeme Earl, James Miles and Hembo Pagi in collaboration with Southampton University. This is the first Easter Island statue to be so fully described. A report will follow. See bibliography: Van Tilburg, J.A.,1992, 'H.M.S. Topaze on Easter Island: Hoa Hakananai'a and five other museum sculptures in archaeological context.'

Exhibition label :: G24 Wellcome Trust Gallery :: Basalt statue known as Hoa Hakananai'a (probably 'stolen or hidden friend') Easter Island/Rapa Nui (South Pacific), about 1000 AD This statue, representing an ancestral figure, was probably first displayed in the open air. Some centuries later it was moved into a stone house at Orongo, centre of a birdman cult, and low relief designs were carved on the back. It seems to have been used in both contexts to express ideas about leadership and authority. Ethno 1869,10-5.1 Donated by Her Majesty Queen Victoria Caption for image: Restored buildings in Orongo, where the statue was once housed, Rano Kau buildings, Easter Island, 1960 Photo: JoAnne Van Tilburg/Easter Island Statue Project
