From the artist, Bethany Georges:
"The Kōlea sea bird was my main inspiration behind this piece and is the mascot of the Kaka'ako Kasuals brand and I wanted to pay tribute to the deeper meaning behind their logo. The Kōlea is a seasonally migratory native bird that symbolically represents not only locals who may leave the islands and find themselves returning home, but also tourists who visit for the first time and keep returning to the home they find within themselves while they are here. The plumeria and hibiscus represent what is most memorable about our island hospitality, and the rainbow is inspired by our more lush areas and valleys which nourish the land. The colors of the rainbow are also meant to inspire a playfulness and inner happiness."
Kaka’ako In Mind
