1843 Dibble Hawaiian Islands with Lahainaluna View
This beautiful reproduction of the original antique map of the “Hawaiian Islands” by Sheldon Dibble was published at the press of the missionary seminary at Lahainaluna, Maui, Hawaii in 1843. Dibble taught history at the seminary and encouraged the students to return to their homes and collect oral history from their elders. He assisted in the translation of the bible and from 1832 to 1843 translated more than a dozen volumes of scholarly and scriptural works for the benefit of Hawaiian readers.
What is a Mirrored Print & Gallery Wrap?
Canvas for Gallery Wrap
Take a good look at your print. The edges are mirrored, so that, the complete image is shown on the face of the frame once it is wrapped. In other words, You don’t lose any of the artwork. Our 2½” mirrored borders, allow your finished product to have a variety of thickness up to 2” deep. Therefore, make sure you choose an experienced framer who can make the frame to the exact specs of your custom print.
Hand-made Rattan Frames
Though the design has changed over the years, we commission these Rattan frames through a small family owned company in The Philippines. Your frame is the result of trial and error of the last 20 years! Rattan is a vine-like Palm that requires forest cover in order to thrive. Rattan grows throughout the jungle for over a quarter of a mile. Its trunk can span a diameter of over two inches down to the thickness of a human hair. The harvester’s collection process is performed by hand by a simple machete. Ultimately, the rattan vine cannot survive without the forest. Rattan quickly regenerates. As a result, this method of harvesting protects the destruction of the forest.
