Musee du Quai Branly: showcasing spoils of a colonial past

"Pendentif Hei Tiki – Le tiki est un motif lié à la figuration humaine et la term heib signifie.

'pendant'. Les hei tiki pouvaient être portés par les hommes et les femmes maoris et se tranmettaient au fil des générations.
Début du 19e siècle, jade, fibres végétales, os"
(Musée du quai Branly, Paris)

[Musee du Quai Branly is a new museum in Paris showcasing indigenous artefacts obtained during France's colonial period. The museum attempts to draw connections between its represented cultures through evoking narratives of difference and progress. Despite this somewhat naïve ethnographic stance the museum goes someway towards representing the vastness and diversity of indigenous knowledge.]
