kou 1 by Derek bencomo Bencomo

kou 1

Rare Hawaiian Kou wood calabash vessel. Hawaiian Kou wood was used by the Hawaiian Kings for their vessels. The trees were killed off by insects. I have only been able to get a small branch here and there over the years. I always keep these bowls for myself. I occasionally sell one to a Hawaiian family who wants one for a heirloom. This one 6.5 x 7 inches. All of these bowls are based on traditional Hawaiian shapes
