Rapa Nui Petroglyphs Nov 05, 2013
Petroglyphs on Easter island can be found on many locations, usually close to ahu’s or around caverns. Keep your eye on the small stones that are usually making circle on the ground. That is the only protection that most of the petroglyphs have. Best time to view this drawing is when sun is at the angle (morning or evening) and when shadows make it possible to see the carvings. There are also beautiful petroglyphs of the birds in Orongo. One lady that has a stall in the main souvenir shopping center next to the church is famous for finding the petroglyphs and making the prints by tracing them on the cloth and paper.
