10/16 This is a 1000-year-old moai statue from Orongo, Easter Island named Hoa Hakananai'a. It was collected by the crew of the English ship HMS Topaze, under the command of Richard Ashmore Powell, on their visit to Easter Island in 1868 to carry out surveying work.

11/16 We thought this was a cute-looking thing; it is a late 19th/early 20th century Hohao, or spirit board, from the Gulf of Papua. The figure on this carved and painted board depicts a forest spirit known to the Elema people, who live on the long coast of Orokolo Bay in southern Papua New Guinea. (Room 24, Living and Dying)

16/16 We had left our luggage at the Natural History Museum (because easyHotel wouldn't store it for us) so we went back there to pick it up. This is the ice rink by the museum with the beautiful museum in the background.
