The Majestic ʻOʻo bird, known as "The Prince of Hawaiian Forest Birds" is the star of this painting. "Royal Falls" is a portal to Hawaiʻi's past. The ʻOʻo on the lehua blossom, Mamo (in flight) and the Kioea perched on the Koliʻi blossoms, exhisted on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. These birds are now extinct but their haunting song lingers. The yellow feathers of the ʻOʻo and Mamo were used to decorate capes, helmets and lei of Hawaiian Royalty.
The mat is the decorative border on the outside of the actual print. Matted prints are measured by outside matte dimensions available in 8"x10", 11"x14", and 16"x20" - fitting standard sized frames.
Full-size prints extend to the full dimensions of 8”x10”, 11x14” or 16”x20” (or equivalent square inches in the case of narrow artwork). There is no mat border, so the picture itself is larger than a matted print.
Matted and Full-Size prints come in clear protective sleeves with foam core backings.
Giclée, pronounced zhee-klay, is a French word meaning “fine spray”. Giclée are the finest quality reproductions printed on canvas then varnished with a durable protective coating. They can be stretched and framed like an original painting, and need no glass covering. Mine are sent rolled and ready for framing.
You may inquire about gallery wrap giclée, which add an extra 1-5/8" all around with the image mirrored edge. Gallery wrap giclée cost 20% more than standard giclée, and can be stretched at a frame shop near you as a contemporary option to framing.
International orders will have added postage that will be reported to buyers for approval. International shipping is typically two to three times normal shipping.
