Bowers Museum Fellow Ronald Pietersma treats us to a stunning glimpse of the mysterious Moai of Rapa Nui. The photographic journey undertaken as part of a Bowers Fellows Expedition documents the iconic stone carvings that have enchanted and fascinated the world since their discovery. While the beauty of the Moai on Easter Island is accepted by many as a universal truth, seeing the details of these imposing creations is a rare privilege that we can share as we are invited into this generous vision of the shadowy Moai as towering examples of Oceanic Art. Just as the Bowers Museum brings the world to you, as a Bowers Fellow you are invited to worlds and experiences of which you may have only dreamed.
