Galatea's popping up everywhere these days. I like the thinness and shape of the Koa. Looks like it would fit well in the hand. From what I understand Koa is pretty special stuff. I need to do something with mine.
I have always been a big fan of koa. It is wonderful wood that can have breath-taking figure and color variations.
I love both the color and contrasting materials used on those scales. Beautifully executed!
