This is an authentic pair of traditional Hawaiian Paddle Axes with intimidating shark teeth. These beautiful pieces of art measure 18" long and 4" wide with a total of 24 real tiger shark teeth per club. Both were hand carved from rare Curly Koa wood and have woven loops of fibers also called "olonai", a Hawaiian shrub, the bark of which is valued for its strong, durable fiber. From the pictures one can appreciate the attention to details of the carvings, rich grain and smooth patina of the wood.
These distinctive pieces of polynesian art would be a great addition to a hawaiiana collection. Also perfect as tropical decor for an office or hawaiian style decorating theme. A great gift with MUCH ALOHA!
