KAMEHAMEHA BUTTERFLIES ALOHA SHIRT
The butterfly has always been a symbol of healing and transformation.
The Kamehameha butterfly (Vanessa tameamea) in this print is one of only two native Hawaiian butterflies. This print is particularly special to me because during a period of mysterious health problems that turned out to be serious, I made this design.
This print symbolizes hope, healing, love, and the transformation of not just me, but also of the community around me that rallied, stayed the course, and transformed with me. During this time of healing, it became clear to me that love was everywhere, I just hadn’t been seeing it before. These butterflies symbolize that love.
