Listen to the Sounds of the Ocean when you go to sleep...

What could be more relaxing than the sounds of the sea? Soft waves lapping against the sand of a lonesome beach, the sun going down and the rustling of palmleaves, softly swaying in the breeze...

The silk sculpture on the wall may be reminiscent of one of your most beautiful holidays on Hawai'i, or any other at the sea. Colours of dark blue to the light blue of the sky, the turquoise hues above white sand, the greenish shades where the seagrass is growing below the surface - all these colours are represented in this silk carving which is called Ho'okipa after the famous surfer beach on Maui. The silk carving belongs to the series of Hawaiian Symbols.
