Marquesans - Marquesas Islands

XXVI-14 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Marquesans | Hakamou’i, Ua Pou, Marquesas Islands | French Polynesia, 2016


All over the Marquesas islands you can find tikis, wooden or stone carvings of half human, half godlike figures. One of the most notable is The Smiling Tiki, famous for its beaming grin, found deep in the jungle of Hiva Oa. Most tikis have large eyes, a sign of knowledge. Each has its own meaning, but in general they often serve as protectors: most islanders have one in front of their house or wear a miniature one around their necks.

Jimmy Nelson Foundation

With your purchase you support Indigenous communities taking their heritage into the future

With its projects, the Jimmy Nelson Foundation (JNF) is completing the circle Jimmy has started. As cultures are rapidly changing through time, and the world’s cultural diversity is at risk, now is the moment to act. The JNF supports Indigenous communities in preserving and passing on their traditional heritage and knowledge by investing in reciprocity and educational projects.

When you look at people- whether they are the Huli from Papua New Guinea, the Mursi from Ethiopia or even oneself- look beyond and do not judge. Often the truth is far different from what the eye beholds.
