The popular Rapa Nui (Easter Island) moai cast in the Hall of Pacific Peoples for #MuseumMonday. Easter Island is famous for its rows of moai, basalt figures of deified ancestors that were carved in quarries, then moved to a platform on the water’s edge. There are 887 moai on Rapa Nui, where they are revered, even considered by some islanders to be sacred.

My friend, and an amazing artist, Chris Furniss created a colored version of yesterday’s comic for me! He did those really awesome “31 Days of Samus” comics a little while ago, and also does a nerd culture podcast called the Weekly Geek, and is also a super nice guy with a kick ass apartment.
