The Hawaii Island Chain is an iconic symbol that one is bound to see if they have ever visited the state of Hawaii. Why settle for a flat map of Hawaii when you can capture the topography of the Aina with a Koa sculpture that’s the impetuous of Hawaiian Decor? A few have made pieces of Hawaiian island wall art that resemble the island chain, but none to my knowledge has reached the level of detail, quality, and affordability that is sold here.
- My pieces are carved from Koa wood that’s grown on the Big Island of Hawaii and hand selected for the best artwork possible.
- A satin lacquer and a burnished oil finish are offered; the first has a more traditional finish surface with some depth, and the other has less shine with minimal finish “build”.
- Each island is sanded meticulously, receives several coats of lacquer, is buffed between coats, and finally has a satin lacquer top coat applied.
- In the case of the “Burnished Oil” finish the islands are burnished to a very high grit, recieve a hand rubbed oil finish, are burnished yet again, and recieve a final hand rubbed coat.
- Lacquer is a more durable finish in the way of humidity, and even offer brief resistance to water exposure.
- The burnished oil finish will have less shine, potentially appear more natural, and will not seal the wood–it should be kept in a stable environment, and not handled extensively by hand.
Every set includes all the Hawaiian islands : Hawaii’i, Maui, O’ahu, Kauai, Moloka’i, Lana’i, Ni’iau, and Kahoʻolawe.

“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.
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.
Wood island chains should be hung indoors and out of direct sunlight;
away from excessive humidity or extremely variable temperatures.
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.
