A native dancer, a tourist and a dog at Ahu Tahia in modern day Easter Island.
Situated near the town of Hanga Roa, the ahu sits near a canoe ramp and was restored by an archaeologist in 1974.
It is perched alone on a ceremonial platform.
Tahai is thought to be among the earliest ahu structures on the island dating back to 690 AD.
