This design depicts Santa Claus in Hawaiian attire playing the ukulele while sitting on a rock. The ukulele is a small guitar-like instrument that was introduced to Hawai’i by Portuguese immigrants during the 19th century. It is the main instrument of Hawaiian music and was popularized worldwide by various renowned artists ranging from Elvis Presley to Jake Shimabukuro. This design has between 30 – 40 individual pieces of exotic wood and the words “Mele Kalikimaka” means Merry Christmas in Hawaiian.
We offer this design as wall décor in a large size and ornaments.
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.
