This is an amazing collection of traditional Polynesian artifacts, based around the travels and collections of Victor Segalen, and how he pretty much introduced the idea of Exoticism to France.
If you are into seeing the type of artifacts you only usually see in books do not miss this exhibition, and if you can't make it the catalogue is still a feast for the eyes.
There is also a room dedicated to Gaugin with some of his "Tiki" Sculptures and to top it off a bar area created by ourselves.
The exhibition continues through until November and is at Daoulas Abbey near Brest in Brittany
