Rano Kau Volcanic Crater, Easter Island

Carole-Anne

Campbelltown, Australia

Artist's Description

The spectacular Rano Kau, volcano, Easter Island, Polynesia, Pacific Ocean. The Birdman cult had its centre at the top right of this image on a 300 metre cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Easter Island belongs to Chile.
The Polynesian name for the Island is Rapa Nui. Early settlers called the island “Te Pito O Te Henua” (Navel of The World), because it was so remote from anywhere else. The English name of the island commemorates its European discovery by a Dutch exploration vessel on Easter Sunday in 1722.
