After stopping and spending time at the site where the only Moai on the island with eyes stood, we set out for Ahu Akivi. Here seven moai stand on a single platform. Also at the site was a cremation pit for the kings. We toured a few local caves and finally stopped at Puna Pau. This is the quarry of the top knots. To think of the amount of men and strength to remove the top knots from the quarry then transport them to the moai sites is magnificent. Such a magical and mysterious land.
