Hawaiian Monk Seal

40.00
The state mammal of Hawaii, the monk seal, is named for its folds of skin that somewhat resemble a monk's cowl. Hawaiians call the seal `Ilio holo I ka uaua, which means, "dog that runs in rough water."

This is an 8" x 10" archival pigment print on paper made from bamboo- a sustainable and renewable resource.

This print is inspired by the endangered species posters of my 80's childhood. Hang this print over your bed and dream about swimming in an iridescent ocean with the charismatic seals of Hawaii. 

Jenny Kendler is an interdisciplinary artist, environmental activist, naturalist & wild forager who lives in Chicago. She is currently the first Artist-in-Residence with Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), her work explores human beings' complex relationships with the natural world.
