A New Path to the Stone Age

Los Angeles Arboretum & Easter Island Moai March 11, 2012

These pictures were taken at the Los Angeles Arboretum a few years ago.  The Arboretum is a 127 acre botanical garden and historical site.  Near one of the spring fed lakes was the Tongva/Gabrielino village called Aleupkigna.

I have always been interested in the mysterious monoliths on Easter Island called Moai.  This miniature version is at the Long Beach Aquarium in California.  It was donated to the Aquarium by the original descendants of the Island.
