Easter Island statue cartoon - tourist with camera

Tourism Cartoon
An Easter Island (Rapa Nui) statue (or moai) and a tourist with camera

This cartoon is an illustration of the way that tourism affects the places that are visited, with the local inhabitants modifying their behaviour as a result of the tourism.
Here an Easter Island statue has a camera round its neck.
However, the fact that the camera is carved from the same block of stone as the statue implies that the statue had the camera before the tourists arrived, making the cartoon ambiguous

Easter Island is also known as Isla da Pascua (Spanish) or Ile de Paques (French)
