Glyph of the word 'nu'. and Glyph of the word 'nu'.


  • (syl.) glyph for the syllable nu in the Kamakawi syllabary
  • (n.) wood
  • (adj.) wooden (used only when referring to something that is naturally made of wood)

Fule nu ie eneta ti ue.
“We need wood for the boat.”

Notes: The iku for nu was formerly the drawing of a stick. This stick was then rotated 45 degrees and straightened out a bit. That’s how it looks the way it does today.

For some reason, this iku was used to build some of my most favorite iku. You’ll be seeing them in the future.
