Warriors

These are warriors dressed for battle or dance, displaying a variety of handheld clubs, i-wau. Attention is drawn here to the boar's tusk ornaments, bati ni vuaka, worn by the men on the left, the form of the sash worn by three of the men, and the skirts, likuvau, made from pleated lengths of the bark of hibiscus tiliaceus.
