Ancient Hawaiian Calabash for Sale
Posted: August 15, 2015 Filed under: Articles, Teasers
For sale: a calabash, a large wooden bowl from the days of Kamehameha I, which has passed through generations.
A Hawaiian chiefess used the calabash during feasts as a container for poi, which the ancient Hawaiians ate around the table. That is, before she met her death when one of her disgruntled workers pushed her off a cliff.
