Talking Moai?

Abstract

Van Tilburg (1998) eloquently expressed our current understanding of the moai as "an icon exemplifying the fundamental Polynesian concern with genealogy, generation, status and respect. It served as a cultural motivator and modifier of group behavior." This covers the functions comprehensively-but fails to tell us how the moai accomplished all of these things.
