Handmade on the Big Island of Hawaii, authentic Hawaiian petroglyphs are recreated here in clay.  Carrying the Mana, or Divine Power, of the ancients in their bold, simple lines, these symbolic rock carvings are found throughout the islands. The tiles are made to resemble our local Hawaiian Lava rock, however no lava is used in the production of these original art tiles.


These special boxes feature the Turtle petroglyph ceramic tile inlaid in finely crafted Koa, a unique and beautiful wood found only in Hawaii. Due to variations in the natural materials used, all sizes are approximate.  While the turtle image is our most popular, the petroglyph tiles can be customized to make a truly unique Hawaiian gift. Contact us for more information on other tile images to make your box your own.
