Summary

Description
Deutsch: Abbild des Kriegsgottes Oro (To´o) von Tahiti. Oro wurde repräsentiert von einem länglichen Abbild mit einem hölzernen Kern, das mit sorgfältig geflochtenen Kokosfasern umhüllt war. Sein „Mana“ bezog das Bildnis aus kostbaren Vogelfedern, mit denen es ursprünglich ausgestattet war. (Metropolitan Museum, New York City)
