Longears from Ceylon to Easter Island


The stone statues of the ancestors on Easter Island characteristically show a straight narrow nose and thin, sharply defined lips. They have pointed chins that protrude. Their hair is a specially selected red stone called "pucao". The statues depict "Long-ears" and Thor Heyerdahl established a connection between these Long-Ears of Easter Island and the corresponding aristocratic population of the Andes Mountain region in South America which also had elongated earlobes from heavy ear ornaments.


"Long Ears" of Easter Island
 


Almost all existing descriptions and sculptures of Aditya, Gandharva and Apsara gods and demigods and Daitya demons, and also Buddhist saints, depict them with long-ears, very often with large weighty earrings.

 

Statues, bas-reliefs and pictures of "long-eared" beings are also often found in India, Indochina, China, Polynesia and Melanesia. The custom of artificially extending the ears has for a long time been practiced by many tribes of South-East Asia. It later became widespread among the inhabitants of Easter Island. Companion of Dutch Admiral Jacob Roggeveen, who discovered Easter Island in 1722, Sergeant Behrens wrote: "Some earlobes hung down to the shoulders, and some wore them as a special decoration with white disks." The same custom existed among the inhabitants of the Marquesas Islands and Melanesia, which lies a few thousand miles from Easter Island. Elongated earlobes were common among the ruling caste of the Incas, being caused by massive gold ornaments hanging off of them which caused a severe stretching the lobe, to which the Spaniards have given the nickname "orehones", meaning "long-eared".This indicates a kinship between the "long-eared" islands of Polynesia, Melanesia and South America and the fair-skinned Indian gods, demi-gods and demons (Adityas, Gandharvas, give, etc.) of India and Southeast Asia,

Jayasree has pointed out the significance of the tradition of wearing heavy weights in the ears and stretching the ear-lobes is a connection between the Cholas of Ceylon and the Egyptian dynasty that included Tutakhamen. There is thus a link that suggests the dynasty came into Egypt from Ceylon probably via Ethiopia and Somaliland (and mingling with the already-established Egyptian aristocracy, who had genetic ties to Western Europe by way of The Megalith builders.) Incidentally , James Churchward envisioned a settlement in Ethiopia coming from the Tamils of Ceylon. There is some genetic evidence that one of the Southern Asiatic lines Out Of Africa had reversed itself and then went back into Africa. This now gives some grounds to back up Churchward's statement.

So we have this trait of earlobe distension as marking connections to the royal family from Ceylon and Southern Asia extending into Egypt and Ethiopia on the one hand to as far away as Peru on the other. This may sound like too large of an area but a single Language family fills in the gap in between, the Malayo-Polynesian. And not only are there Malayo-Polynesian languages in Southern India, the furthest Eastward outpost of the Malayo-Polynesian peoples just happens to be Easter Island.

  1. Dear Mr Dale,

    An useful article that gives me more leads on my research. However I differ in the noting "Cholas of Ceylon". Ceylon does not come into the picture of Cholas or any Tamils in the era that we are talking about, say 3500 years BP. Cholan occupation of parts of Ceylon was in 1000 AD. For quite long before that Indian or Tamil people did not occupy Ceylon. The Sinhalas who occupied Ceylon before the start of the Common Era were an offshoot of Bengalis. There is genetic study linking Sinhalese with people of Bengal.

    For this topic, I do have info to substantiate that Tamils, Polynesians and Incas shared a common culture. Their influence went as far away to Egypt (18th dynasty) perhaps through marine connections.

    regards,
    Jayasree

  2. Thank you Jayasree, my use of the term"Cholas of Ceylon" was probably unfortunate. The important part of the construction is doubtless as you have stated in your clarification. Thank you for your comment.
    Regards, Dale D.
