Chile Easter Island Ahu Tongariki

These 15 moai were impressive. They (one weighing 86 tons) were knocked down by a tsunami during the 1960 Concepcion earthquake. They were restored in 1992-1994 under the direction of Claudio Cristino and Patrica Vargas with the assistance of the Japanese crane company Tadano.
