Artist's Description

In Hawaii there is a common tree in the forest called the 'ohi'a tree, that is important in Hawaiian culture. It bears beautiful flowers called Lehua blossoms. Occasionally these blossoms are yellow or orange, but the most common color is red. There is a legend associated with the 'ohi'a tree and it's blossoms that goes like this: One day Pele, the goddess of the volcano, met a handsome young man named 'ohi'a.

About James Temple
