Additional Information: Matson Lines Hawaii - Festival of the Sea. Artist: Eugene Savagae. Horizontal format. Size: 12" x 21". Year: 1952. This is one of the Matson cruise line original menus. Presented in an acid free folder for protection. 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 in length. 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.
