The Honu or Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle can be found all over the shores of the Big Island of Hawai’i. It is a magnificent animal to witness while swimming in the beautiful waters of Hawai’i. One of the best places to see this wonderful creature is on the East side of the Big Island in Hilo at an incredible lagoon located at Carlson Smith beach park. The beach is also known as four mile and is the best place to swim with it’s sandy bottom and chest high depth.
This Jacob Medina 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.
