Lost in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, thousands of kilometers away from any other place, huge monolithic statues with almost human form flood every corner of Easter Island. The construction, transport and placement of these sculptures of more than 80 tons, still raises some doubts.
Probably with ceremonial motives dedicated to their ancestors, these imposing sculptures of volcanic rock were created and distributed throughout the island, many of them more than 1000 years ago, leaving clear samples of advanced architectural and engineering knowledge.
There, the Rapanui, were able to grow and develop an entire civilization away from any other, with limited resources, and in a very small area, a clear example of the tenacity of the human race and the struggle for survival. In addition, before a company of such great magnitude, as was to raise these colossal statues, they discovered and advanced in great techniques, which remain a challenge for modern technology. How did they do it? Even today they are a true ENIGMA.
All this must have inspired this pre-jacking civilization, to develop gigantic drawings that used their own earth as a canvas.
A work that defies all the limits of its time, and for which they had to use techniques and tools invented by themselves, and whose purpose could be to propitiate a ritual landscape, for the invocation of water, the most vital asset in this desert area of Peru. Undoubtedly, the greatest symbol of a culture that was also characterized by developing great progress in economy, architecture and especially agriculture.
Although studies have managed to know and reconstruct the process of creating these lines, many other questions have not yet been resolved regarding them. How were you able to orient many of these drawings to other great monuments of your civilization? What other reasons propitiated these works of such magnitude? This and other issues continue to involve another great ENIGMA of history.
