Le Polynesian half-god

Maui is one of the prominent characters in Moana, the new Disney cartoon based on Polynesian legends. At the beginning of the film, Te Fiti, a Polynesian goddess created life and settled in the middle of the sea, taking the form of an island. Maui, a demigod comes to this island and steals her heart in the hope of fighting Te Ka, the lava monster. But the stone is lost during the battle. A thousand years later, little Moana finds the stone on the beach while she is collecting shells. A few years later, when she becomes a teenager, she realizes that the island is dying, the fish no longer approaching it and the trees dying there. She decides to go there to reunite the goddess with her heart, encouraged by her grandmother, and despite the warnings of her father. For this mission, she will be accompanied by Maui, the demigod responsible for the disaster.

A god in the Polynesian fashion

Maui was a Polynesian god, his appearance is in keeping with the criteria of beauty of this region. He is therefore big, strong but with also very fat with a prominent belly. On his torso, arms and legs, there are numerous Polynesian tattoos slightly bluish and very finely reproduced by Funko. To cover his body, he wears only a loincloth and a collar of teeth. In his left hand, he holds the impressive hook that he does not let go of the whole film. His face is quite simple but you can easily recognize the thick mass of brown curly hair cut in two by a ray in the middle.
