Sneak Preview! Part two of the trip-tiki!

You've probably seen this before--it's a painting of a moai, found on Rapa Nui (Easter Island).

They're carved from volcanic rock, weigh tons, and many were moved by the original inhabitants--we still don't know how--from where they were made to a new setting. Kind of Stonehengey in its mystery.

As with many symbols, or what we assume to be symbols signifying something else, the meaning of these statues are lost.

The appreciation for them, however, is not. Good looks may be fashionable, but seeing beauty is an eternal gift we give ourselves.

Take care,
