Chile Easter Island Ahu Te Pito Kura and Henua

The Ahu Te Pito Kura is reputedly the largest moai ever placed on an ahu (9.8 meters high, 82 tonnes) but now lays flat down and broken in half - probably destroyed by missionaries ~1838 (per Bradt Chile travel guide). We didn't even take a picture of the moai - only the sign. I tried to feel the "energy" of the large round stone called Te Pito Te Henua aka "navel of the world" but felt nothing.
