Upper section of a Rarotongan Staff God. The large head in profile is succeeded by a number of smaller figures, alternately in full face and in profile. The middle section of the staff was covered with rolls of tapa. The lower section also has small figures and it ends in a phallus.
A Rarotongan Fisherman's god (Williams' Narrative, p. 118). It was placed upon the fore part of every fishing canoe. Before setting off on a fishing excursion, the fishermen presented offerings to the god, and invoked him to grant them success (ibid., p. 117). This figure is in the British Museum and bears the inscription ‘Figure of Tarianui’ (Great Ears), which is the Tahitian form of the Rarotongan ‘Taringa-nui’.
