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.
