The original Hawaii painting was the design for a commissioned tile mural for the State of Hawaii. The painting tells the Hawaiian legend of Hanauma Bay, which means “hand wrestling” bay. Can you see the two hands wrestling in the coral arch on the left side of the mural?
In addition, there is the island of Oahu formed by the wrestling coral hands. Notice the Hawaii State fish, the Humuhumunukunukuapua’a, kissing Hanauma Bay on the map of Oahu.
