Mano 'Aumakua

$30.00


💫Enjoy the whimsical spirit of animals with one of my fine art giclee prints! 🎨

🦈 "Mano 'Aumakua" is an archival print from my original ink & watercolor painting.


🌊 Mano means shark in Hawaiian and an 'Aumakua is a personal and/or family guardian. A symbiotic relationship exists between person and ʻaumakua, the personal guardians of each individual and their family and the ancient source gods from whom Hawaiians were descended.

ʻAumakua can manifest in nature. The form varies family to family. Whatever its form, the ʻaumakua is one specific sea turtle, shark, owl, etc. However, all members of the species are treated with respect of family members.

If family ʻaumakua, these manifestations were not harmed or eaten; in turn, ʻaumakua warned and reprimanded in dreams, visions, and calls.

"ʻAumākua are intimate members of the human family, spiritual relationships with them are especially close and their presence is sought for feast and festivity, as well as in time of crisis. They act as healers and advisors, counteracting troubles and punishing faults." - J. Gutmanis
