dc.description.abstract <p>As reported elsewhere (see Liller, 1993 for the most recent summary and for other references), there now exists overwhelming statistical evidence that on Rapa Nui, as many a 15 or 20<em> ahu</em> were constructed with their orientations or location -or both-carefully predetermined with an astronomical intent in the minds of the designers. One of the most outstanding examples is Ahu Huri A Urenga, the modest single-<em>moai ahu</em> on the outskirts of Hanga Roa close to the road from the airport to Anakena. (This <em>moai</em> is perhaps best known for having four hands.)</p>
