Finely carved coconut bowl ∿ Honu

This finely carved coconut bowl is adorned with the turtle and the ancestral Marquesan motifs for protection. Turtle (honu) carries a strong meaning in Polynesian culture. Like deified ancestors, turtles were believed to have the ability to cross between two worlds - mortal and immortal. Despite being slow in pace, this creature never gives up which signifies perseverance, endurance, and faithfulness – sometimes against incredible odds. It is also regarded as a mark of good luck and guidance.

Elegant and eco-friendly, this hand-carved coconut bowl is great for the environment, and it displays unique pieces of history and culture from the beautiful South Pacific island of Nuku Hiva.
