A traditional Tahitian floral crown adds to the beauty of this smiling girl on the island of Moorea in French Polynesia in the South Pacific Ocean. The flower garland is called a "hei" in the Tahitian language and usually is worn by brides and grooms as well as by female dancers in Polynesian shows for visitors to the islands. The multicolored headresses are made with a variety of fresh flowers, especially the fragrant tiare (gardenia) and jasmine.
