Cook Islands issued four stamps for the 6th anniversary of the Pacific Arts in Rarotonga in 1992.
The 80c stamp shows what I believe a canoe for migration voyages, she carries two crab claw sails, this double hulled canoe which originated in the Hawaii Island, where it was called a “wa’a kaulua” canoe, see: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10833&p=14777&hilit ... lua#p14777
The $1 and $1.15 have the same design. Also on three of the stamps are mythology sculptures from the Cook Islands which were of important ancestral figures. These ancestors were often the first voyageurs to land on the Cook Islands.
