- One of only two endemic butterflies in Hawaii. Shown here on it’s host plant - Mamaki. Numbers of these beautiful fuzzy orange, black, white, and bronze butterflies are declining especially on Oahu. We can help by planting Mamaki. Along with being a necessary part of the Kamehameha Botterfly’s survival it is also significant for its medicinal abilities to uplift and strengthen when drank as a tea as practiced in Hawaiian Medicine.
- Each piece is hand crafted and as so will differ both in print(pattern placement, stamp texture, etc...) and in frame finish(wood grain, stain tone, etc...)
