Mangareva

Polynesian pantheon

Give music a chance

The exhibition brings together the only known works to date from Mangareva, a small island in the Gambier Archipelago.

About the exhibition

There are a dozen statues, anthropomorphic or not, that have never been shown to the general public.

The exhibition is also the opportunity to view a society that is mainly unknown and to make the world aware of the richness and uniqueness of this island culture. For the Mangarevian people, it is also a way of finding its original gods and to revive its history.
