Away from the bustle
Throughout the ages, the Marquesas have inspired painters, poets, singers and writers, such as Jacques Brel, Paul Gauguin, Pierre Loti, V. Segalen and H. Melville. They have recorded in song and on canvas those now famous standards of beauty, such as the smiling faces of the children leaving school, mysterious women sitting on church pews, mute sculptors.
They have captured the dense forests, the majestic waterfalls, a horde of wild horses on a deserted plateau, violent and rocky coast, a bay which is a haven of peace, majestic and twisted peaks, a woman sculpting at night on the beach.
The Marquesas are a peak, a beach, a bay, horses, a sculptor, a tattoo, a tiki, a bird or a light… a moment, a minute or a life.
