Each helmet is a gourd, with foliage and tapa strip decoration. A feather surrounded akua is in the arms of the priest at the center of the engraving. It is not known what the purpose of the ritual surrounding first contact with Westerners was. The condition is described above for more information please check the photos. In case that you would like to save some money on the shipping we are happy to remove the print from the frame and ship it by itself!!!
This is one of a large group of prints that was consigned with us from the collection of a well known business in Honolulu. The pieces were hanging in a air-conditioned environment out of direct sunlight since the 1970s. They were consigned with us due to a redesigning of the office space. The values were established via the Senior Fine Arts appraiser in Honolulu in a recent appraisal and reflect the current fair market value.
