Hawaiian sea turtle on a surfboard. The honu is one of the most beloved sea creatures in the world. It lives on the reef close to shore and feeds on seaweed and small crustaceans. In Hawaiian culture, the turtle is both loved and revered. It is known as the guardian of the Hawaiian people or ‘aumakua. This turtle on a surfboard is wearing a lei that consists of more than 40 individual pieces of Rosewood, Pheasant Wood and Redwood. This design was created for anyone who loves turtles, surfing and the Hawaiian way of life.
We offer this design in various options such as wall décor, ornaments, magnets and puzzle boxes. The wall décor comes in sizes medium and large.

*The wood types used for this design vary upon availability and the photos above are examples of the different possible color/wood combinations you may receive. You are welcome to request a particular color and we will always try to accommodate your needs.
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.
