Polynesian jewelry (N° 19497)

This book presents Polynesian jewelry from New Zealand, the Marquesas Islands, Hawaii and Fiji - an archipelago at the geocultural intersection of Polysenia and Melanesia. Often worn to underline an individual's belonging to a given social group, these ornaments were also highly prized for their beauty. Indeed, their refined style, their precious materials such as jade, sperm whale ivory or human bones, as well as the extraordinary know-how of their manufacture still contribute to their great aesthetic value today.
