Sinahi ginen Sa'ipan

The above sinahi was carved by Joe Guzman. The hima from which this sinahi was carved, was found right here in Sa'ipan. It is approximately 6 1/2" in lenght.

This is the same sinahi as above. It is a close up view of the spondylus inlay. Before the inlay, there was an imperfection on the said site. The spondylus inlay makes it a unique piece as it is the only one of its kind.

My art work on display for a photo session.

A picture of Pagat and I at the 22nd Guam Micronesia Island Fair (2009). Notice the colossal hima in the center as well as the Acho' Latte.

Guelo and I at the same grounds. Guelo is from the island of Luta and check out his massive slingstone (Acho' Atupat).

    I am a native Hawaiian and my Husband is native Chamorro from Tinian . I really want to get him a Sinahi for Christmas and your work is beautiful . Do you ever sell online and ship to the states ? Ever since he left the island to join the Army he has been majorly home sick . I think it would help.
