Large Koa Hawaiian Island Chain Wall Art

Large Koa Hawaiian Island Chain Wall Art

Hawaiian Koa wood is a rare and precious wood endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. Koa, in the Hawaiian language means brave, bold, fearless, or warrior. Koa wood is becoming more and more difficult to get as the trees are endangered and the wood can only be harvested after the tree has fallen naturally. My koa wood comes from the slopes of the Big Island of Hawaii where the trees grow best at higher elevations. After harvest, I allow my wood to cure for a period of at least two years before use.


This large size of my Koa Hawaiian Islands fits well on a 5-7’ wall. The Big Island (or the Hawai’i Island has a dimension 11.5” x 11.5” x 1” thick). The 3 dimension hand carved islands comes with 8 Individual islands. Each island comes with a saw tooth hanger on the back of the island to easily hang on the wall.


On the back of each Big Island, the artist will sign it, as well as sign Kalai Koa Woods and Made in Hawai’i.


Natural wood varies in grain and color. As no two items are exactly alike, contact the artist for choice of items in stock.


Hanging the islands is easy. There are just a few steps to follow. First look up the Hawaiian Islands on a map. This will give you an idea of the relative distance between the islands. Next figure out your wall space. Get a small piece of tape, painters blue tape works well, and place it in the center of where the Big Island will hang. This will be on the lower right side of your space. Then do the same for each of the islands working your way down the island chain using the map to maintain the appropriate relative distance between the islands. If you want the island chain to cover a larger area on the wall, just spread the islands out maintaining the appropriate relative distances between them. Once you are satisfied, place a nail or screw into your wall to hang the islands.
