This is by the side of the road, you must pay attention or you'd miss it. It was used as a trophy for warriors and was carried around the islands. You can imagine the sound when you blow into the holes.

A small site on the northeast coast road east of Hanga Roa. A rock with multiple holes bored into it that supposedly were used as a "trumpet" to call the fish toward the shore for capture. Protective fence now prohibits trying your own trumpet skills.

This small stone is protected by a fence. Try to get a close look at the fertility petroglyphs etched in the stone. Also your licensed guide has park permission to go over the short fence to demonstrate how the stone was used.

This 1.25m (4 ft) stone is named after Hiro, the ancient god of rain. A stone aerophone, blowing through the main hole results in a deep trumpet-like sound. Several legends surround its use. Did its sound attract fish to the coast? Or summon participants to a ceremonial fertility ritual? Perhaps it was used to invoke Hiro during periods of drought. Like the other mysteries on Easter Island, no one knows for sure. If you’re driving the north coast road, make a quick stop here to admire an ancient Rapa Nui musical instrument.
