Western Aloha - Placket Dress Heart Sutra with Sea Turtle

 

For more than 40 years, Mayumi Oda has made it a practice when she can’t paint to copy out the heart sutra. In this print, she used an overlay technique to place a sea turtle (or honu) over the sutra, blending her practice with the love of her home in Hawaii. We used Mayumi's original artwork in creating this textile design, so if you look carefully enough you can even see the ink drops from her paintbrush in some places.

Sizing: XS (0-2), S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16)139
