Uhiuhi

The uhiuhi tree, with it’s delicate blossoms, once ranged from the dry lowlands to the moist upland forest. However, it is now highly endangered, primarily because of cattle and other grazing animals introduced in the 1800’s. Lei were made from the small lovely flowers. The dense wood was used to make weapons, tools, fish hooks, house beams and runners for holua sleds. Printed on Hosho Japanese paper with deckle edges.
