Humuhumunukunukuapuaa (reef triggerfish) by Patti Datlof of Joyful Spirit Arts.
The Humuhumunukunukuapua`a is the state fish of Hawai`i. This colorful fish can be seen on many of Hawai`i’s underwater reefs. It can sometimes be territorial and a bit aggressive if protecting it’s nesting area.
This ornament is laser etched and cut on a piece of koa wood.
