The Trocadero, which then became the Musée de l'Homme is now known as the Musée du Quai Branly, Paris. The central sculpture is part of the Quai Branly collections (collected 1879) and it is likely that the two paddles are also. The central sculpture is shown in J.H. Cox and W. Davenport, 'Hawaiian Sculpture', The University Press of Hawaii, p.132.
