Takona 2009 – Three Ages…

Jun 11, 2020

Helga Editor of MoeVarua, used takona shots for the cover photos on her monthly magazine (color of course). So she was always anxious for me to include as many as I could in my shoots – I would turn the color JPGs over to her before we left each trip. A few were used for covers. In 2009 she arranged for Mokomae to do the takona on a selection of girls and one baby – two of the girls were Vanessa and Carolina, both included in The Moon has been Eaten. Three more are here, one above and two below. At present, no names.

Finally, here's Heidi's baby:

I really appreciate when the takona is applied to just one side of the face – it can be quite attractive on a girl and very intimidating on a guy. It's done a lot that way on the Island. These have been added to page 8 of the Easter Island folio.

Everyone please stay safe – and, more importantly, help keep everyone else safe...
