These beautiful carvings are made for us in Bali- I brought the artists pictures of each island flower, and this is their interpretation of those flowers. They can also be hung on the diagonal, for a different perspective. I just love adding texture to a space instead of flat art. Measures approximately 11″ square.
This carving depicts Kauai’s official lei flower, the Mokihana Berry. The Mokihana is a native citrus tree. The leathery anise scented fruit must be strung within a few hours of picking. Hawaiian women and men both wear the strung berries as leis and the scented twigs and berries were once a favorite perfume.
