Nice Petroglyphs Jan 18, 2012
Ana Kai Tangata Cave is very close to the city, and on the way to Rano Kau volcano. That area of the coast is a basalt cliff, maybe 15-20m high with few caves carved in by waves. Little path leads from the road to the cave, and you’ll have to go down carefully till you come to little beach with large pebbles. At first I did not see the petroglyphs because whole ceiling is amazingly colorful and rock is divided in many red layers with weird green and yellow deposits. And then I saw bunch of bird petroglyphs on one of the walls and they were totally surreal. That piece of rock is falling apart, and it does not look like that image is going to be there for too long. I was very surprised that there is no better protection of the site, especially when there is a museum of local art on the island.
Beautiful colors of the ceiling
