“Heart of the Ocean - Original Carved Hawaiian 'Ipu' Gourd”

12" height x 8" diameter | Heart Design
An Ipu is a percussion instrument made from gourds used to provide a beat for hula dancing. The Ipu gourd was a cultural staple in ancient Hawaiian life, aside from a drum instrument, the Ipu served as a container for food, medicine, and water.  The artist hand carved this gourd with hearts, waves, and whale tails.  Each Ipu Gourd is unique and cannot be replicated.
