The Rock Art of Easter Island: Symbols of Power, Prayers to the Gods, Georgia Lee
1992, UCLA Institute of Archaeology, Monumenta Archaeologica 17, cloth d/j
225 pages, 28 color plates, 226 figures, 9" x 11-1/2"
Easter Island has long been known for its gigantic stone heads (statues) popularized in the writings of Thor Heyerdahl.
Georgia Lee's efforts have brought to our attention the equally spectacular pictographs and petroglyphs of the island.
Her study represents 10 years of work, and fully documents the 4000+ rock art elements discovered to date.
A typology based on style is constructed, and correlations are made with ethnohistorically determined clan territories.
This work is profusely illustrated with hundreds of pen-and-ink drawings, and 28 beautiful color plates.
