For the 6th anniversary of the Pacific arts in Rarotonga, Penrhyn issued three stamps in 1992 which shows native crafts.

$1.15 shows a “vaka tou’ua” viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16484&p=19448&hilit=waka+tou%27ua#p19448

$1.75 Shows a sail of a pirogue, but I can’t make out the type of the canoe.

$1.95 Shows a “vaka taurua” see: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=13389&p=14799&hilit=taurua#p14799

The poster on the left side of the stamps shows a “wa’a kaulua” viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16492
