Original Native Hawaiian Crow Painting
Return of the ‘Alalā depicts three native species from the Big Island of Hawai’i. The native Hawaiian crow, or ‘alalā, the beautiful Koa tree, and the tree’s little foe the Koa Bug. Unfortunately the ‘alalā itself is extinct in the wild and there are only about 150 left in captivity. However, there is going to be a release of the ‘alalā back into their native habitat in 2016 coordinated by The Keauhou Bird Conservation Center. The area has been restored to the natural environment of the ‘alalā and is protected in an effort to help this beautiful bird thrive and once again repopulate the Big Island of Hawai’i.
This piece is painted with acrylic and enamel on panel. The frame is custom made out of reclaimed Koa and is meant to reflect the native Koa tree represented in the painting. The original is available for purchase at the Volcano Art Center located in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, or on their website here.
These are hand-signed, ready to hang, high quality Giclee inkjet reproductions nearly as beautiful as the original work. They are gallery wrapped around a 1.5″ stretcher bar frame, printed with archival pigment-based ink, and coated with a UV varnish that will extend the life of your art. Please allow up to two weeks for your prints to be shipped from the time ordered since custom stretcher bars must be made and the Giclee must be stretched at the time of the order.
These are high resolution reproductions printed on glossy paper. Each print is wrapped in a clear sleeve and backed with a stiff foam board. Paper prints have a white border and are ready to frame since they come in a standard frame size.
