Replica Details:

Hoa Hakananai'a is a moai (Easter Island statue) housed in the British Museum in London. It was removed from ‘Orongo, Rapa Nui (Easter Island) in November 1868 by the crew of the British ship HMS Topaze, and arrived in England in August 1869. Though relatively small, it is considered to be typical of the island’s statue form, but distinguished by carvings added to the back, associated with the island birdman cult. It has been described as a "masterpiece", "without a doubt, the finest example of Easter Island sculpture".

When recorded in 1868, Hoa Hakananai'a was standing erect, part buried inside a freestone ceremonial "house" in the ‘Orongo village at the south-western tip of the island. It faced towards an extinct volcanic crater known as Rano Kau, with its back turned to the sea.It may have been made for this location, or first erected elsewhere before being moved to where it was found.

Most statues on Rapa Nui are of a reddish tuff, but Hoa Hakananai'a is made from a block of dark grey-brown flow lava.Though commonly described as basalt, quarried near to where the statue was found,there is no record of petrological analysis to confirm this.It stands 2.42 metres high (7.9 ft), is 96 cm across (3.1 ft), and weighs 4.2 tonnes.

In its original form, the back is thought to have been plain, apart from a maro, a belt or girdle, which consists of three raised lines and a circle above, and an M on a vertical line below. Near the base are slight indications of buttocks.
