What the incredible,the unreal beauty!

Makawao, Maui, HI - United States

This original oil painting represents three consecutive dreams that I had on the nights of March 10th, 11th, and 12th of 2010. On March 13th, I learned that Herb Kane, founder of the Polynesian Voyaging Society and designer of this canoe had passed on the night of March 9th, 2010. The Hui O Wa'a Kaulua at 525 Front Street has been building this transoceanic voyaging canoe for over 12 years and when completed will be Maui's own voyaging canoe. I completed the painting before I ever actually went to see the real canoe because I preferred to be loyal to my dream. The evidence of my clairvoyance came on the day I saw it because the 62 ft. hull with the lashing was identical to my painting. That was over one year ago and the canoe is still not ready to put in the water––although the masts, sails, and rigging are now complete as of December 2012. The Mo'okiha O Pi'ilani is one of 5 ocean going Hawaiian canoes in modern times. The name: Mo'okiha O Pi'ilani means: "The Sacred Lizard that Sours in the Heavens" in English. When the Mo'okiha does set sail this Summer 2013 on a sunset evening for her maiden voyage to Tahiti, it will be one of the most important moments in history for Hawaii since the canoe is the highest Art form of the host culture and represents Hawaii to the whole world. A generous portion of any sales of either the original painting, The Certified Limited Edition, and all of the prints, posters, and postcards will be donated to the Hui O Wa'a Kaulua in Lahaina (Canoe Club) for the completion of this canoe and further development of other canoes. Mahalo Sincerely, Loren D. Adams, Jr.
