Rapa Nui. Polynesia: Extreme Survival
The “Mata Ki Te Rangi” Foundation (Easter Island) developed this exhibition, which aims to raise awareness of one of the most amazing and exciting stories in the world: the achievements of the Polynesian society, which for more than a millennium has developed a spectacular culture in the distant and small Easter Island (Rapa Nui). More so, since this society had to face their survival in complete isolation, and in an extremely poor environment as a direct result of human action.
Rapa Nui is the most isolated inhabited island on the planet, and its geographical location affects its unique physical characteristics, with less biodiversity, where humans build risky relationships with environment. Therefore, this exhibition is a warning to the present time, due to the destructive action of the human being on the environment.
