Treasures of Easter Island 

English text - Treasures of Easter Island Since the first accounts by the great travellers and up to current literature, much has been written on Easter Island having participated, intentionally or not, to the creation of an often inaccurate image of this solitary land in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean.

With this book, we hope to contribute to a better understanding of the history of the Island and its inhabitants by studying a collection of exceptional works of art.  This collection includes most of the types of carved wood in the Island’s art, brought together in a single, very old collection: that of the Picpus Fathers, the first religious congregation to set foot on Easter Island in the 19th Century.

Catherine and Michel Orliac, archaeologists, researchers and botanists, offer us a refined and original approach to the Island, the organisation of its population, its complex society and the remarkable art which has accompanied the history of its people. 

Treasures of Easter Island - Rapa Nui

Treasures of Easter Island is the fruit of many years of research carried out by Catherine and Michel Orliac, archaeologists and CNRS researchers. It offers a refined and original approach to the Island and its people.  The organisation of this population, on such a small territory and under such harsh conditions, gave birth to a complex and fascinating society. The art that has accompanied the history of this island is the best proof of this.  It needs to be approached and studied with care in order to be appreciated and understood to the fullest.
