Moai Defeat is about the death of public monuments, which deify leadership and its cultural, legal and social power. This piece is made from custom Colonial interior molding and also alludes to the decline Western Colonialism, as well as the end of indigenous populations, like the Rapa Nui people of Easter Island.
