Manutara Paintings

The cave Ana Kai Tangata is in close proximity to the town of Hanga Roa. This is a very easy accessible grotto with an entrance at sea level. The cave is famous for its colorful paintings showing seabirds that islanders call Manutara. These cavern images suggest a close relationship between this cave and village of Orongo, where the annual Tangata Manu completion took place every spring.
