Bird Man of Lanai Petroglyphs

Neighborhood: Offroad
Overview

Found at the slightly alarmingly named Shipwreck Beach, these crude drawings are a very important historical relic of the island and one of its principal tourist attractions. The figures are about twelve inches tall, with odd, bird-like heads. They're only a few hundred years old, which is young by petroglyph standards, but their attraction is in their inherent mystery - who drew these figures? Why? What do they represent? Shipwreck Beach is an excellent sunbathing site so visiting the petroglyphs is the perfect way to get some culture and catch some rays.
