This publication follows the introduction of Hawaiian featherwork into
Europe and beyond, and it seeks to explain why and under whose authority
these objects left Hawai‘i. Fot the first time, this catalogue raisonné
lists all pre-1900 Hawaiian feathered Gods, Helmets, Capes and Cloaks. It
presents what is known about their fabrication, colour, design, and the
meaning of their motifs.
