    British Museum asked to return Eastern Island monolith

    The “Hoa Hakananai’a” measures about eight feet in height and weighs an astonishing four tonnes.

    A delegation from the Chilean Easter Island early this week has asked the British Museum in London for the return of an iconic statue believed to date from around 1200 AD and even offered to replace it with a replica carved from stone by a contemporary artist.
