Hawaiians created the most beautiful bowls in Polynesia. Early in their history, they began crafting elegant wooden containers inspired by the rounded forms of the gourd and coconut. All of these were used as containers and came to be known collectively as "calabashes." This book is the first to trace the complete story of the Hawaiian calabash. Ardently collected, displayed, and treasured, the Hawaiian wooden calabash came to embody, for many, their pride in and love for the very spirit of Hawaii. The latter part of the book completes the story with the history of calabashes made of gourd, coconut, and fiber.
