Sovereign Hawai’i Currency

About This Project

My concept for this piece was if hawaii gained sovereignty from the US and was its own nation. I incorporated endangered animals on the back and well known aumakuas on the front to signify the past and present of Hawaii, while also bringing awareness to endangered species. I also incorporated the natural resources found in Hawaii like the power wave buoy and wind turbines. I wanted my piece to represent what I feel like makes Hawai’i stand out from the world, which is its close connection to the land and animals and trying to preserve them for future generations to enjoy.
