A French boat showed me a paddle he had made by the village artist Temo.
Temo knew he was at least 5th generation wood artists.
A paddle is called Hoé in Polynesian

After ordering it I came by next day and he was done with the paddle itself

The patterns just come to him, he has no plan, he says the god Tiki gives him the pictures that suits me

Done! The little birds head is supposed to create a sound in the water when you paddle, that sound is meant to attract fish
