There seems to be something special about Easter Island that makes people think. big. Perhaps its those tall monolithic statues that once dotted the island's coast. Whatever the cause, the "think. big" trend also came to include one of the island's architectural features which has been given the name, hare moa, which translated into English means "chicken house" or coop.
