THE SHIRT


In historic Hawaiian culture ancestral guardian spirits (aumakua) often took the forms of an animal. If I have an aumakua, it would be an octopus (he'e). The more you learn about different octopi traits the more you might think that they are aliens living here on earth.

Weird Octopus Facts:
• highly intelligent (they can open jars to get prey and escape their aquariums and return to them)
• can change color and patterns on their skin for camouflage or threat mechanism
• have no bones so they can squeeze through tiny holes and cracks
• use jet propulsion to swim up to 25 mph
• have 8 arms with taste sensing suckers
• if they lose an arm, they can regrow it
• learn from watching each other
• they use tools and build structures
• shoot black ink as a defense
• they have a beak
• 3 hearts
• blue blood
• deaf

So - they are the weirdest! This purple VAKA octopus is diving deep and the path for this shirt took some twists and turns to get somewhere I liked and I hope I learned from it.
