Koa Warrior is a mash up of Day of the Dead iconography with Hawaiian culture. The skeleton is derived from the Mexican holiday Dia de los Metros and is represented in traditional Hawaiian war clothing. The mushroom helmet was worn by high ranking chiefs, or Ali'i, who often went to battle. The cloak was also worn by Ali'i and was usually made out of local bird feathers. One of the most popular weapons of the Polynesian culture is the Leiomano, which means lei of the shark. It is a paddle made of koa wood, inset with shark teeth. The ship in the background references the arrival of Captain Cook who the Hawaiians had mistaken for the god Lono.
