Custom Nauti Kapu Ki'i 2/12
$225.00 Sold out
Kapu Ki'i was inspired from my last trip over to the Big Island when I went to visit the Ki'i at Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park. This Pu’uhonua (Place of Refuge) is where a criminal could go to seek forgiveness if they violated the Kapu and seek refuge there. Since the remains of the chiefs protected the refuge area, the warriors would not be able to shed blood on these sacred grounds of Pu’uhonua and so they would end their pursuit of the lawbreakers who found refuge there.
This custom built Nauti Kapu Ki'i has been glazed up in a weathered bone glaze with a dark brown glaze for the nauti-rope base. The inside has done up in a bright turquoise blue... Stands at just over 11" tall and holds about 16oz.. I made this so that the bottom does not fill with liquid, easier to clean and still holds a lot.
This is #2 out 12 pieces of this Nauti-style but most likely fewer than that.
For orders outside the USA there may be a change in your shipping charge (Higher or Lower) depending on your location. I will email you the exact amount once it's boxed and weighed. ;)
Nauti Kapu Ki'i will be signed and comes with it's own hang-tag.
