Moai Sculptures on the rapa nui island

Paper Moai Sculpture

Rapa Nui, also known as Easter Island (or in Spanish, Isla de Pascua), is home to the world famous moai. The moai are GIANTS and they're made of rock from a volcano. You can always spot a moai because their heads are so big compared to their bodies!
