This carved head appeared mysteriously on Barmouth’s Ynys-y-Brawd dunes in 2010. The wooden carving depicts an Easter Island Maoi man and stands three meters high.

The sculpture was donated by a Midlands couple who watched it being carved at Powys Castle. It stood in their garden for ten years before they decided to pass it on to Barmouth for the residents and visitors to enjoy.

It is located just off the concrete path which leads from the Yacht Club.
