This is the first book to reveal the complete story of this Hawaiian fine art form. Of all the arts of Polynesia, none was more subtle and sophisticated than that of working in wood. Using superb native woods renowned for their natural grain and colorings, the ancient Hawaiians crafted elegant containers inspired by the rounded forms of the gourd and coconut that are known today as calabashes.
