Capture the beauty of the Aina and it’s topography with bonded copper sculptures of all the major 8 Hawaiian islands. The islands are captured within the brilliance of copper, are given a patina to contrast the islands’ topography, the patina is selectively buffed off to create highlights, and then finally a museum grade wax from the UK is applied. Each Hawaiian island has a durable bonded layer of metal on the face, and edges–the benefits of a beautiful metal finish without the cost & weight of foundry cast artwork at under 10LB for an entire 68″ set.

“Island Chain Size” is the size of the entire island chain in length and width.
If you were to take a Hawai’i state map with tight margins, unroll it, and hang it on your wall–that would be the size of your Hawaii wall art.
“Big Island Span” is the size of the Big Island.
If you took a tape measure to the Big Island this would be the greatest measurement you could find.
If desired hanging template(s) can be ordered for a modest amount for sizing purposes which includes hanging hardware, instructions, and the selected size(s) chosen.
The sculptures were made from a carved Koa Hawai’i island chain and feature similar detail. They feature hand buffed museum grade wax finish on-top of the metal gel coat and are back-filled with a high strength urethane resin. Pictured is the museum wax option, however, a lacquer specifically made for artwork is also offered for those who want such a finish.
Every Hawaiian island chain includes hanging hardware, a template, and written instructions.
They are easily hung with typical screws or nails, and the islands will hang flush against your walls.
If a picture can be hung on your wall than an entire island chain can easily be hung on any wood or drywall.
There is a two week lead time with my work as it’s made to order unless otherwise noted.
