This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 9/5/2019

Original copies of Rick Griffin's Hawaiian Aoxomoxoa is one of most coveted, desirable and expensive concert posters in the world. 

The reprint offered here offers the opportunity to own this treasure at a more affordable price. This poster has it all, incredible color, design and one of the best examples of the artists signature lettering style. It was created for a concert by one of the greatest bands in the history of Rock n Roll, and it's incredibly scarce.

The Hawaii Aoxomoxoa was inspired by the artwork for the third Grateful Dead album. This poster was created for a run of cancelled 1969 Dead shows in Honolulu, Hawaii. As the legend goes, the printer did not get paid by the promoter and destroyed all but a handful of copies. 

This piece is in Superb Museum Quality Condition and 100% Original with no restoration! In October 2017, a lower 9.4 graded example reached $1047 in our auction. In any other collectibles market this 9.6 poster would be worth many multiples of the previously sold example. It will be interesting to see what premium the market attaches to this superior example now.
