Petroglyph Linen Maxi - Jungle
New for holiday 2020 is our Petroglyph print in our classic button front maxi.
The idea to create a print of ancient petroglyphs found in the islands is born from my experience of being raised in a family of both professional and self-taught archeologists. Growing up on the bluffs of the Missouri River, the land we lived on was littered with Native American artifacts, mounds and sites. We were taught not to disturb, but to appreciate only that on the surface. Our family vacations usually led us on detours to ancient ruins and cultural sites. My dad and uncle were self taught archeologists, with an interest that became contagious to us kids... My sister went on to study archeology and anthropology and became an archeologist here in the islands, which is what pulled me here a year after her. That first year living here with her was pretty amazing. My passion for hiking started around that time, setting off on trails looking for the few known glyphs here on Oahu. Other dreams pulled my sis back home to Missouri. I guess this print is sortof an ode to our family-gene pull to these types of spiritual places, and our way of feeling a place and feeling the land and to the people who made it their home long before us. The few glyphs in this print are part of a personal study of the site located on the Big Island at Pu'u Loa, which translates into Hill of Long Life. This is the largest known site in the islands, with more than 23,000 glyphs.
I recommend leaving the top button undone, for a more casual look, as shown in the photos, but feel free to button it up if that's more your style.
Contrast top stitching and a flattering open collar add detail in the right way. This linen blend fabric has a little more structure, breaks in nicely and is sure to stand the test of time.
