Collection Théry Atchévinsky

Neret et Minet, Paris, 26 mars 2003, n° 7

Objet de prestige plus que véritable outil cette hache cérémonielle atteste de l'élégance de l'art de l'archipel. Au raffinement du décor couvrant en chevrons répondent la finesse de la ligature et la beauté de la lame taillée en basalte.


Présente dans la collection Théry Atchévinsky cette herminette s'apparente très étroitement à celle conservée au Leningrad Museum (inv. 402-11) acquise en 1891 par Micklucho Macklay ; elles illustrent toutes deux l'art ancestral de l'île de Mangaia.
