The Rock Art of Easter Island
Symbols of Power, Prayers to the Gods

by Dr Georgia Lee

The giant stone statues of Easter Island, called moai, have brought Rapa Nui renown and have fasinated generations of travelers, scholars, and armchair adventurers. Less monumental but just as spectacular as the moai, the rock art of this remote island is thoroughly and beautifully - in exquisite line drawings and full-color plates - presented in The Rock Art of Easter Island: Symbols of Power, Prayers to the Gods, by Georgia Lee. This volume presents the firstisland-wide comprehensive documentation of Easter Island's 4000 petroglyphs and rock art paintings.

Under the auspices of the University Research Expeditions Program, University of California, Berkeley, Georgia Lee used an exhaustive methodology to note manufacturing methods, associations, superimposition, placement and spacial relationships of the prehistoric carvings and paintings. The data collected made possible major conclusions concerning the design motifs and their relationship to ancient Easter Island society.

The Bradshaw Foundation prescribe Georgia Lee's publications as recommends reading to anyone interested in learning more about the remarkable history of Easter Island.
