National Geographic : 1920 Oct
316 THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE Photograph from Paul Gooding NATIVE TAHITIAN GIRL Even Stevenson grew extravagant when dwelling upon the charms of the women of Tahiti. Here is one traveler's eulogy: "Bridge of nose incurved, nostrils slightly flattened, and lips, if a trifle thick, yet in perfect harmony with pearls of teeth and those deep brown eyes, so sweet and voluptuous without offense! Hair black as ebony, flowing over the shoulders, sometimes tied with a bit of bright ribbon and capped by that wreath; legs bare, feet, too, ankles just lovely. Some are smoking cigarettes rolled in pandanus leaves."
