In keeping with Hawaiian cultural traditions, this model is carved out of Koa wood.
Koa is a large tree endemic to the islands of Hawaii, in other words it grows nowhere else in the world. The Koa trunk was used by ancient Hawaiian to build the various type of dugout canoes and like today with so many other things, the size, shape and beauty of the canoe was used as a status symbol by the Hawaiians .
Koa is also used for wood carving and furniture. It is a tonewood and used for the construction of Ukelele.
Note: Due to the naure of koa wood, the grain and precise color of the koa hull may change from model to model.
The gift bow, with its signature title THE ART OF POLYNESIA is laminated with printed petroglyphs and gilded canoes which identifies its content with the Hawaii culture and its past Royalty.
To add to the user’s experience of unboxing this unique hand made model, the box is fitted with a concealed magnetic closure.
