CULTURE Sculpture
Sculpture is one of the major arts of French Polynesia. Initially, pieces of art were produced on all 5 archipelagos. Nowadays, most sculptures you will find along your trip are produced in the Marquesas islands. Polynesia sculpture is characterised by some kind of mystical power that seems to emanates from the subjects chosen by the artist, often inspired by old original designs and patterns. The Tiki is a human representation of a divinity. It will be frequently encountered on markets. But you will also find some weapons such as spears and "head blowers", musical instruments (toere, ukulele) and cooking ustensils (umete). The material used for sculpture is mostly wood and sometimes stone, mother-of-pearl or bone. Weaving
Originally, this was a specialty of the Austral islands. It can now be found on most Polynesian markets. The wood used for weaving is usually pandanus, although you may see some pices made out of coconut leaves (niau) or local bamboo (ofe). Common articles are hats, baskets and mats (peue).

    Flag of French Polynesia Territory of French Polynesia zSB(3,3) Spread across nearly 2,000,000 square miles of the South Pacific, in an area as large as the continent of Europe, lies the Territory of French Polynesia and its principal island, Tahiti. Settlers from Southeast Asia are thought to have first arrived in the Marquesas Islands, in the northeastern part of what is today called French Polynesia, around 300 AD and in the Society Islands, including Tahiti, to the west by about 800 AD. Prior to the first European contact, the islands were ruled by a hierarchy of hereditary tribal chiefs. The first Europeans to visit the area were the English explorers Samuel Wallis in 1767 and James Cook in 1769. French explorer Louis-Antoine de Bougainville arrived in 1768 and claimed the islands for France. In the late 1700s occasional ships arrived in the islands, most notably the

In 1975 worldwide opposition forced the French to move the testing underground on Fangataufa. To compensate the residents for the nuclear weapons tests from 1995 to 1996, France offered a 10-year $194-million annual compensation package. An independence movement continues to flourish in French Polynesia. In 2004, France changed its status from a French Overseas Territory to an Overseas Country, which gave French Polynesia more autonomy over local affairs.

    Before I launch into a long discussion about why you should be considering the island paradise of French Polynesia for your next holiday, let me mention a few names: Marquesas, Tahiti, Society Islands. If you know anything about French Polynesia at all, you wont even have to read on. This place really is paradise on earth.
    Hot, Hot, Hot
    So, youre dreaming of a tropical paradise? Well, considering that the average ambient temperature in the islands is around eighty degrees Fahrenheit, you can certainly tick that off your list! But dont worry, most of the resorts and hotels have air conditioning! The water temperature hovers around the same temperature, so that means you can strut your stuff in your bikini without worrying about goose bumps. French Polynesia Islands
    Shop for Pearls
    If you have the budget, theres no better place in the world to buy black pearls than French Polynesia. Then again, if you have more of a beer budget than a champagne one, there are also some amazing mother of pearl items that are a lot more budget friendly. In fact, even if you havent got the cash to buy pearls, you can still see how they come into being, by paying a visit to the pearl farm on Tamaa or at Tuamoto it really is an amazing experience, and who knows, if you drop enough hints, maybe youll get an early birthday present?

    French Polynesia Culture Minister Joseph Kaiha opened the convention Wednesday afternoon for some 40 tattooers from French Polynesia, Guam, New Zealand, Hawaii, Easter Island
    Vetea Rata wins 1st international prize at Tattoonesia 2008 convention Sunday, 16 November 2008 (Tahitipresse) - 11/7/2008- Vetea Rata, 35, a Tahitian with a reputation for creating realistic works of tattooing art, has won the first international prize at the 4th "Tatau i Tahiti", or international Tattoonesia Convention being held in Tahiti.
    Rata's winning design was a Japanese geisha woman that covers the right thigh down to the knee of the young Polynesian who wears it. Rata needed 5.5 hours of work to create his masterpiece for Brian, who said later, "tonight I will take pills to calm the pain and allow me to sleep".
    "We are awarding prizes for new, inventive creations, those that are works in their own rights," said Huuti, chairman of this year's jury, which is made up exclusively of professional Polynesian tattooers.
    The Tattoonesia 2008 continues through Sunday at the Aorai Tini Hau Hall in Tahiti's north coast Commune of Pirae. French Polynesia Culture Minister Joseph Kaiha opened the convention Wednesday afternoon for some 40 tattooers from French Polynesia, Guam, New Zealand, Hawaii, Easter Island and Europe.
    "I don't have a particular style," said tattooist Rata. For his winning creation, he mixed Polynesian designs with Western or Asian representations. He confided that he charges some 100,000 French Pacific francs (US$1,099/€838) for such a piece of work.
