The "Honu" is the Hawaiian word for sea turtle, specifically the Hawaiian green sea turtle. This design is a petroglyph etching borrowed from the ancient shoreline works in the Ka`u district on the Big Island of Hawai`i. The wood is solid koa, collected from fallen trees on the slopes of Mauna Kea. The wooden beads are hand-painted and depict a voyaging canoe or honu.
