Hawaiian Petroglyphs

Some of the most spectacular rock art in the United States is found throughout the Hawaiian Islands. This unique and well made rock art is very different than the rock art found on the continental U.S. and yet there are similarities in subject matter that indicates a common oneness between diverse ancient cultures.

Common subjects of Hawaiian petroglyphs are canoes, paddles & sails; stick figure and solid body anthropomorphs, family groups- males, females and smaller children; supernatural beings with horns, bird heads or wings; dogs, turtles and chickens are found, but fish petroglyphs are rare. Common are cryptic symbols of curving lines, dots, circles and amorphic shapes... all of which are often combined and superimposed on one another.

Why no 'shopping cart', why call my order in? Each carved stone is individually made. Because of the unique characteristics of each individual stone pieces carved with the same petroglyph image appear different from each other. The pictures on the carved stone pages show the actual items for sale... the phone call is to confirm the items you have selected are still available and have not been previously sold.
