"Pā 'ū Passage"

685.00

This extra large palm vessel was created from two Alexander Palm sheaths, stitched together with disappearing waxed lining around a large 16" round wood base.  It stands 26" high.  The top natural edge collar and the bottom is trimmed in soft, black deerskin.   Versatile uses could include dried arrangements, fresh flowering branches, walking stick collection.

"Pā 'ū Passage" derives its name from two things - the first word pa'u (pronounced pah ooh) is the Hawaiian name for a woman's skirt or sarong, usually on horseback. The texture of this piece reminds me of the of the beautiful draped fabric of the Pau Rider's skirts as seen in the Kamehameha Day Parades.  The second name "Passages" is the series. The Passages series emulates tree trunks that join (and provide a passage) from the earth (roots) to the sky (branches). (Ti leaf lei in 2nd image not included)
