Engraving entitled Isles
Sandwich: Femme De Lile Mowi Dansant. In this wonderful picture
sketched in 1819, the artist Jacques Arago records an unusual design motif
with representation of goats tattooed around breasts. Often referred to
as the Venus of Hawaii, it is a striking and poignant
depiction of a Hula Dancer who appears dressed in a kappa skirt. Collection
of Mark and Carolyn Blackburn.
