Pele's Magical Mist Aluminum Print
The legend of the beloved `Ō`hia Lehua tree continues on against the backdrop of the steam vents at Kilauea Volcano and tropical rain forest on the Big Island of Hawai`i. The flowers have been long revered to be used in hula dancers haku lei or lei po`o (head leis).
There is a beautiful legend in Hawaiian culture about this tree. The legend says that one day Pele met a handsome warrior named `Ō`hia and she asked him to marry her. `Ō`hia however, had already pledged his love to Lehua. Pele was furious when `Ō`hia turned down her marriage proposal, so she turned him into a twisted tree.
Lehua was heartbroken, of course. The gods took pity on Lehua and decided it was an injustice to have `Ō`hia and Lehua separated. They thus turned Lehua into a flower on the `Ō`hia tree so that the two lovers would be forever joined together. Hawaiian folklore says that if you pluck this flower you are separating the lovers, and that day it will rain.
Aluminum Prints are a process of electrostatic heat transferred dyes onto aircraft grade aluminum which creates a very vibrant and unique piece of art. The photograph looks as though it may leap out at you! I call it HD TV for my photography. The prints are waterproof and have a UV clear coat to protect from fading. Each print has a pre-mounted frame on the back which creates a floating effect on the wall. No additional framing is needed. Please treat as fine art. These pieces are not meant to be abused and must be handled with care. Care instructions are included. Watermarks will not appear on prints. Saw tooth hanger and frame color may vary. Allow 4 weeks after date of order to ensure I have time to make and ship the piece to you. Please read my return policy and copyright notice before ordering. Looking for the photo prints? Click Here
