- Grasset de Saint-Sauveur, Jacques, 1757-1810; Laroque, J, active 1796
Engraving shows a man of Santa Cristina (Tahuata), an island in the Marquesas, wearing a feather headdress. He wears a cloak hanging down his back, a short fringed skirt, and fringed garters on his upper arms and upper calves. A large pendant hangs around his neck, and his feather earrings have ribbons haning from them. He hold a large club in his left hand, and in his right hand he holds up an unidentified yellow ridged fruit.
The work is likely to be from Grasset de Saint-Sauveur's "Encyclopedie des voyages ..." published in Paris in 1796.
