- Grasset de Saint-Sauveur, Jacques, 1757-1810; Labrousse, L, active 1796
Engraving shows a woman of Santa Cristina (Tahuata), an island in the Marquesas, wearing a plumed headdress. She has a striped cloak tied around her shoulders, a short bodice with a geometric pattern, and a short skirt with a wide belt tied to hang centrally. She wears ornaments of straps and feathers around her calves. Her left hand leans on a long staff with four "teeth" near its base, and holds in her right hand a basket of fruit and foliage. In the distance is a hut overhung by palm trees.
The work is likely to be from Grasset de Saint-Sauveur's "Encyclopedie des voyages ..." published in Paris in 1796.
