Implements of New Zealand (continued)
4. A Fish-hook, made of two pieces of bone tied together; the line is fastened both at top and bottom; and, to the latter part, they tie some small feathers. The length of this hook is 4 3/8 inches.
16. A favourite Ornament, which resembles a human face, made of wood, coloured red, and is much like some of the Roman masks. The eyes are made of the fine coloured ear-shell mentioned No. 1, laid into the wood. This was six inches long; but they have different sizes. Some of the smaller ones have handles carved very ingeniously; these they frequently held up when they approached the ship: perhaps it may be the figure of some idol which they worship.
Plate XXVI. Various Kinds of Instruments Utensils &c, of the Inhabitants of New Zealand, with some Ornaments &c, of the People of Terra del Fuego & New Holland.
