Sun Shines Everywhere 12375

Linda Garcia took the Alameda Sun with her to Rapa Nui, more commonly known as Easter Island. The island is home to approximately 900 monumental statues called moai, created by inhabitants of the 13ththrough16th centuries. The giant, monolithic, carved moai are scattered around the island, some standing proudly against the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean, while others lie buried up to their necks in soil.
