The stair case you see here is carved from Koa. Elsewhere it is known as acacia. The Koa was cut down at the property of Princess Pauahi’s estate on the big island of Hawaii.
The Koa was then sent to Minnesota where it was milled and sent back to Oahu where it was put into the museum.
A close up of the finniel carving
It was at the bottom of this stair case that a student taking a private evening tour with her class told me about her experience.
As the guard turned out the lights they stood there and watched as a lightly scented light assend to the second floor and checked out each exhibit case and then ascended up to the third floor and do the same. It then descended to the first floor and was gone.
Yes there are many types of artifacts and visitors to the Bishop. You never walk away disappointed.
