"These images tell the story of the legend of Naupaka, and explains the two types of Naupaka. One type is only found in the mountains, in the Mauka region, and one type is only found by the ocean, in the Makai region of the island. Each blooms a flower that is half-blossomed. It is said that each blossom represents lost lovers that when put together create a whole.
There are different stories of Pele being jealous of their love, chasing them or wanting to destroy them. There are other stories of Naupaka being a princess and him being a commoner, or a fisherman, a tale of forbidden love. I tried to be as respectful as I could and do as much research as I could. At the end of the day I'm very happy with how they came out.
For the Makai piece I tried to give it a horizontal gradient, to represent the horizon, the sky, the ocean. Whereas for the Mauka side I did a vertical gradient with vertical bands of color that are meant to represent the mountains and cliffs in Hawaii." - Kamea Hadar
