'The Head of a Native of Otaheite, with the Face curiously tataow'd'
Two Tahitians, one with traditional tattoos and the other showing the characteristic facial expressions used in dancing and fighting, in which the Tahitians 'distort the muscles of their faces, and twist their mouths diagonally, in a manner which none of [the Endeavour's crew] could imitate.' Illustration from A journal of a voyage to the South Seas, in His Majesty's ship, The Endeavour, by Sydney Parkinson (London, 1773), which was published posthumously.
Original: engraving. 1773
