Kamehameha II

 

Like the Hula and the Hawaiian Chants of Old making a quilt in memory of  a King, Queen, Friend and loved one brings honor to them. This quilt made back in the 1990’s  by Joomi Shiroma depicts whales and symbols of Hawaii prominent during the reign of Kamehameha II.  Our beloved King was born in 1797 and reigned from 1819 to 1824.  Unfortunately in 1824 he died in England with his wife Kamamalu.  90″ x 90″  Designed by John Serrao, Quilted by Joomi Shiroma

The Hawaiian Helmets of Old and Tabu Stick are shown in this quilt to symbolize traditional Hawaii, while the whales and fire and the center of the quilt symbolize a changing world coming to the Hawaiian people.  Whaling season was at it’s peak during the reign of Kamehameha II.
