"From Mauka to Makai"|
Carved Block Print - 9 Inches x 12 Inches
From Mauka to Makai displays my Great GrandFather farming Taro to make poi for his 'Ohana \ Family. And Fishing for I'a or a variety of fish to feed his wife and kids which my Tutu or grandmother was one of them. Mauka = mountains, Makai = ocean, it shows a life of balance. On a symbolic level Hawaiian Mythology would always pair opposites to create a sense of dualistic balance.
