"The Polynesian Voyaging Society (PVS) was founded in 1973 to carry out an experiment that would help answer some questions: how did the Polynesians settle the far-flung islands of the mid-Pacific Ė by accident or by design? Did their canoes and their knowledge of navigation enable them to sail purposefully over the vast sea distances between Pacific islands?
"PVS began with the building of a replica of a Hawaiian voyaging canoe, HōkūleĎa, launched in 1975, to explore the seafaring heritage and the voyaging routes of our ancestors...." Find out more here: http://pvs.kcc.hawaii.edu
I've been watching HōkūleĎa and her trips across the waters since she was first launched, and it's a privilege to paint her. I've wanted to for years and years and just never did. Here she is.
