Matavai Bay, Tahiiti

This memorial to the Bounty was unveiled on 27 October 2008, the 220th anniversary of Bounty's arrival in Tahiti. The memorial, designed by Tuinui Salmon, is frankly hideous, though the crude portraits once assumed to be of Fletcher Christian and his Tahitian wife are actually of John Adams, the last mutineer left alive on Pitcairn Island, and Martha Young, daughter of mutineer Edward Young.
