Easter Island has long been known for its gigantic stone heads (statues) popularized in the writings of Thor Heyerdahl. Georgia Lee's efforts have brought to our attention the equally spectacular pictographs and petroglyphs of the island. Her study represents 10 years of work, and fully documents the 4000+ rock art elements discovered to date.
 
A typology based on style is constructed, and correlations are made with ethnohistorically determined clan territories. This work is profusely illustrated with hundreds of pen-and-ink drawings, and 28 beautiful color plates.
 
Georgia Lee has published several other books on Easter Island, including The Uncommon Guide to Easter Island and Rapa Nui, Island of Memory.
