Hawaii Hawaiian Dugout Folk Art c.early 19th century

Early 19th century Hawaiian Folk Art Dugout that measures 18' inches in length.

Unusual hand-carved architectural pattern created in native palm wood.

This work of art was purchased many, many years ago from a Papaya plantation owner's estate sale in Florida. The plantation owners who lived in Hawaii, had a vision of creating a Papaya produce empire that challenged Hawaiian farmers by creating an east coast market using Florida's sub-tropic temperatures and cheap seasonal migrate labor. Great expectations were foiled by unexpected climate difficulties and labor problems. The estate sale produced several rare and exquisite early Hawaiian artifacts and folk art from this plantation owner's collection including this dugout.
