Several Rongorongo Records (Symbolism of Archaic Beliefs)


Easter Island (Rapa Nui), a remote islet in the Pacific Ocean, keeps many secrets. The real hieroglyphic script, rongorongo, is a feature of its ancient culture.

Sergei V. Rjabchikov succeeded in decoding these mysterious characters. His papers are published below.

Information about Rongorongo Inscriptions

I have been studying the Easter Island writing system for many years, and need badly any information about rongorongo inscriptions engraved on Rapanui artifacts (tablets, stones, pendants, skulls and so on). If possible, please send me photocopies of the drawings as well as the sources. I hope that the enthusiasts will continue an active search for new "talking artifacts" (including rongorongo tablets) in private collections and on Easter Island.
