The fair for 2004 lasted for two days and I made my rounds until I was completely exhausted. On the stand of Galerie Meyer-Oceanic Art, 17 Rue des Beaux Arts, 75006 Paris a beautiful Rapa Nui ceremonial paddle was on sale. It is described as follow: "Rapa, Ceremonial Dance Paddle from Rapa Nui. 1640 to 1820 (Carbon 14) Toromiro wood, 88.4 x 20,9 x 1,5 cm. Provenance: Andre Breton, 42 Rue Fontaine, 75009 Paris, No 6144 of the Andre Brton auction. 2003."
