These paintings have a richly textured background in earthy tones of copper, browns, antique bronze and gold, with a verdigris blue green patina resembling moss covered lava rock. The raised relief of the petroglyphs combined with the textured background create a beautiful 3D effect. It will add a distinctive Hawaiian theme and contemporary, tropical feel to your home and a touch of royalty to your walls!
Measurement: each painting measures 12" x 24"x 1.5" on gallery wrap canvas. The sides are textured and painted - no framing is required. Overall measurement is 38" x 24"
Painted in my studio on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. Artist signed and dated on the back.
The petroglyph depicted is an Ali'i figure from the Puako petroglyph field in North Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii.
The Ali'i can be distinguished from ordinary men by the headdresses, feathered helmets and head-gear they wore. These were symbols of the highest rank, reserved for men of the Ali'i - the chiefly class of Hawaii.
If you're interested in other sizes to fit your space and needs, please message me and I'll be happy to help. Mahalo!
