Tête de moai

Tête de moai

The Moai head at Parc Jean-Drapeau is a life-size replica of the head of an original Moai statue found on Easter Island.

The art piece, done by the Lippincott company, which was once known for making and installing public art works, is one of the 100 mould reproductions made from an original head displayed in New York in 1968 to raise public awareness and block any commercial development on Easter Island. The island's cultural heritage was not protected by UNESCO at that time.

The Moai head was acquired by the City of Montréal in 1973 from The International Fund for Monuments, which loaned it for the Le monde de l'insolite exhibit shown at Man and His World.
