Presented in an acid-free folder for protection. Eugene Savage was commissioned in 1938 to make a series of murals on Hawaiian themes for the Matson Navigation Company. "The Matson Murals" were completed in 1940 and were intended to be installed in the company's cruise ships. In 1948, lithographs based on these murals were used as menu covers on Matson's flagship, SS Lurline. To the Hawaiian of old, fishing was not only a means of livelihood but an art and a sport. In the hukilau, it became a joyous, exciting community festival. Several large nets were fastened together to make a huge one...up to a thousand feet long. It was hauled out from shore in outrigger canoes and spread in a wide semi-circle. Weights along one edge made it sink. This is a 9-color lithograph. The original painting hangs in the Smithsonian Institute as a permanent display. This is an Original Lithograph Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction.
