Here is an intimidating Hawaiian spear made out of KOA with a blue marlin bill and shark teeth. This beautiful piece of art is 6.5 feet long, the bill measures almost 2 feet long, the wood used for this specific item is Koa, rooster feathers is used at the junction of the bill and the Koa shaft, and it has woven loops of fibers also called olona (a Hawaiian shrub, the bark of which was valued as a source of strong, durable fiber). The spear can either be hung or mounted. Koa wall mount not included. (see pictures)
Great piece of art!
You can see from the pictures the attention to details and the smoothness of the wood.
