  • Honu Ofrenda

    , , ,

    This painting depicts a Honu with an ofrenda on it’s back. The ofrenda is an offering in Mexican culture and often includes food, flowers, and candles.  The ofrenda is very common in the Day of the Dead celebration and is used to invite your departed loved ones back for a night of earthly delights.  I chose to show the Honu with a Hawaiian style ofrenda that includes a tea leaf offering and native Hawaiian flowers.  Since the honu is endangered it carries the ofrenda for it’s lost brethren.

    This piece was painted with acrylic and enamel on birch panel and measures 16″x20″.  It comes in a custom wood frame that has been painted with a teal antique finish bringing the total size to 19.5″x24.5″.

    $5.00$1,500.00
