Easter Island far out in the Pacific, rising in sheer volcanic cliffs, swept by Antarctic winds and dotted with giant statues is one of the loneliest and
strangest places in the world. The natives call it "The Navel of the world" but they have another weirder name for it: Matakiterani—"Eyes gazing at the sky."
This record of a small French expedition's nine months' sojourn among the Islanders who live under conditions of the harshest oppression is a unique document. The author's Polynesian wife spoke the language, thanks to her, certain native legends and traditions are here recorded for the first time. Francis Maziere has correlated these with the work of earlier researches and has also carried out researches of his own helped by the Islanders who revealed to him caves never before visited by Western explorers and bestowed on him a precious clue to the Island's secret writing, one of the strangest of its mysteries.
Maziere's conclusions here lucidly postulated, cannot be definitive for too much still remains to be learned. Is Easter Island part of a lost continent? How many migrations were there, and from where? Does the Island show evidence of Cosmic disaster occurring within historical times? Do certain esoteric traditions belong to an era of contact with other planets? How were these statues moved?
To these and other questions Francis Maziere suggests answers and points the way to future lines of research in a book as fascinating as it is controversial, which offers food for throught to specialists and laymen alike.
