The Humuhumunukunukuapua`a (Rhinecanthus rectangulus) is also known as the rectangular triggerfish or Hawaiian triggerfish. The humuhumu was adopted as the official Hawai'i State Fish in 1985 on a temporary basis and then again in 2006 on a permanent basis. This little fellow's Hawaiian name means "fish with a nose like a pig". Our rendition of this much loved reef fish is achieved by the grouping and inlaying of more than 30 pieces of Rosewood (Red), Jackfruit Wood (Yellow), Pheasant Wood (Grey) and Ash Wood (White). Due to its vibrant colors, the Hawai’i state fish is one of the most beautiful fishes you will see while snorkeling on the reefs of Hawai’i.
We offer this design as wall decor, ornaments and magnets. The wall decor comes in either a medium or large size. While smaller in size, our ornaments and magnets are created with the same details and quality craftsmanship as the larger sizes.
Decorate your home or office during the holidays, on special occasions or all year round. Our unique artwork will complement any space and multiple pieces may be grouped together to create various themes.
*The wood types used for this design vary upon availability and the photos above are examples of the variations in color.
Each piece of wood is meticulously hand contoured and carefully assembled to create multi-dimensional artwork. The beauty and uniqueness of our artwork comes strictly from the natural colors and grains of various wood types. No staining or painting is involved, only an oil finish is used to ensure the beauty as the wood ages. Wood burning is used for small details such as the scales of a fish or turtle, etc. Each piece of artwork is stamped on the back with our Le Family logo.
*Please note that this is a one-of-a-kind piece of art. The shape and workmanship are exactly as shown here but because of the different grains and shapes in the exotic woods employed, there will always be some variation in color.
