Rapa Nui Dance

Legend says that on Easter Island, the honoured role of the New Chief was bestowed on the young man who could swim to the nearest atoll and bring back intact a special birds egg. I visualised for this painting the ritual of the young men arriving from their strenuous swim and the girls welcoming them with a special dance.
