Summary
" An ambitious journey of the nineteenth century was the third voyage of the French explorer Dumont d'Urville, from 1837-1840. It was just before the invention of photography, when phrenology, the study of people's skulls, was the latest thing. D'Urville chose to take on the voyage an eminent phrenologist, Pierre-Marie Dumoutier, to preserve likenesses of people by making life casts. Fiona Pardington first learned of the life casts in 2007, which initiated a four-year project. It took her from Auckland to Musée de l'Homme in Paris, as she researched and photographed some of more than fifty cast of Māori, Pacific and European heads, including casts of her Ngāi Tahu ancestors"--Cover
