Inspired by the legends of Kanaloa, one of the primary profound ancestors.
Kanaloa is recognized throughout the South Pacific as the ancestral God of the oceans and often represented by the octopus and is closely associated with voyaging and navigation. In this image we have depicted Kanaloa ushering "the Great Voyage" that lead to the discovery of Hawaii. He is represented with his care of the voyagers providing a calm sea. We have dedicated this image to the continued efforts of the Polynesian Voyaging Society and their perpetuation of Voyaging and sustainability.
