In keeping with Hawaiian cultural traditions, this model is carved out of Koa wood.

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 .

Note: the grain and precise color of the wood may change from model to model.
