Easter Island is located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and home to a culture whose origins and evolution are still largely unknown. A mild year-round climate creates the perfect conditions for exploration of the “Auhs”, that are the home of the gigantic sculptures called “Moai.” Who, when and why were these sculptures created? It is still a mystery.
