THE STORY BEHIND THE HAND-DRAWN DESIGN

Many Hawaiian legends tell the stories of Kamapua‘a, a kolohe (mischievous) pig kupua (demi-god) who takes on many forms at will, one moment a handsome man, the next a pua‘a (pig) or an ‘ama‘u tree fern. Masculine, bold, untamed, sensual. In folklore, he was always successful against all odds at whatever he set his mind to achieve. Associated with Makahiki season, agriculture, and fruitfulness. He is best known for his tempestuous and fiery relationship with the volcano goddess Pele. His adventurous spirit represents some of the best and worst of us. This print represents two of his kinolau (physical manifestations).
