Sharing this reflection on koa by graphic & fabric designer Sig Zane of Hilo, on Hawai`i Island: ------ ULUKOA Standing inside a koa forest is such an incredible feeling. The old trees are so inspiring, just knowing they have witnessed more than a century of time. The youthful ones seem full of vitality, reaching for the light. Like being under a spell, being inside a forest of koa is really awesome! Noticeable at human level are the simple, young leaf patterns. Above our heads, it’s the sickle shaped parts that are prevalent. Those petioles take main stage, making all the noise in the wind and deflecting the sun’s rays. Even on the forest floor, they steal the show! As the father of the forest, the koa is not only the largest tree, but often the oldest. The shape of the petioles gathers the moisture from the clouds and directs it to the understory. This function of caring for his community is a perfect symbol for harmony in the Hawaiian forest! [....] E ola koa! Sig April 9, 2014 ...
