Manutara is the Rapa Nui language name for the Grey-backed Tern and Sooty Tern birds. Both arrive at Easter Island and hatch their eggs on the island called Motu Nui, an event that was used for an annual rite called Tangata manu.
Translation of the writing associated with the Crypt lid.
The widely accepted interpretation of the sarcophagus lid is that Pacal is descending into Xibalba, the Maya underworld. Around the edges of the lid are glyphs representing the Sun, the Moon, Venus, and various constellantions, locating this event in the nighttime sky. Below him is the Maya water god, who guards the underworld. Beneath Pacal are the "unfolded" jaws of a dragon or serpent, into whose mouth Pacal the Great descends.
This is a common iconographic representation of the entrance to the underworld. It is repeated in Mayan art.
These two mechanisms a half a world apart are fundamentally the same.
The entire rapa nui birdman thing was to become like the alien grey's who landed there,repaired their ship and left.
The people of Easter island tries to do the same, denuded their forest and food supplies, resorting to cannabilism.
One thing the trolls missed is that the rotation of the ship completed the human face on the ship.
Hence they started carvinjg stone headed ships themselves.
