10 In this traffic in artifacts, we can find today most of the critical cultural issues in the international flow of “authentic” (see Spooner, Chapter 7) and “singular” (see Kopytoff, Chapter 2) commodities. The current controversies between English and American museums and governments and various other countries raise all the moral and political delicacies that come into play when things get diverted, several times over, from their minimal, conven tional paths and are transferred by a variety of modes that make their history of claims and counterclaims extremely difficult to adjudicate.
T hree additional sets of distinctions between commodities are worth making here (others appear later in this essay). The first, which is a modified application of a distinction originally made by Jacques Maquet in 1971 in regard to aesthetic productions,6 divides commodities into the following four types: (1) commodities by destination, that is, objects intended by their producers principally for exchange; (2) com modities by metamorphosis, things intended for other uses that are placed into the commodity state; (3) a special, sharp case of com modities by metamorphosis are commodities by diversion, objects placed into a commodity state though originally specifically protected from it; (4) ex-commodities, things retrieved, either temporarily or perm a nently, from the commodity state and placed in some other state.
These valuables acquire very specific biogra phies as they move from place to place and hand to hand, just as the men who exchange them gain and lose reputation as they acquire, hold, and part with these valuables. The term keda (road, route, path, or track) is used in some Massim communities to describe the journey of these valuables from island to island. But keda also has a more diffuse set of meanings, referring to the more or less stable social, political, and reciprocal links between men that constitute these paths.
