Marquesan Voyaging Canoe

While in our time Hawaiian navigators sail the highways of the Pacific aboard the double-hull canoe Hokule’a, legend has it that their ancestors sailed Northwest from the Marquesas islands towards Hawaii in double-hull canoes. Inspired by the paintings of Herb Kawainui Kane, this magnificent 36-inch long model is fitted with two sails and type of prow and stern pieces typical of the Marquesas Islands.
