HONU, by Caren Loebel-Fried, is an 8x10" fine art print from an original hand-pulled, hand-colored block print. This art was created for A Perfect Day for an Albatross, published by Cornell Lab Publishing Group. The materials used in this museum quality print are all of the highest quality, printed on acid-free, 100% cotton paper, with archival, pigment-based inks. Each piece is signed by the artist, backed by a white acid-free board, and packaged in a clear re-sealable art bag with a description on the back.

The honu is the name for the Pacific Green Sea Turtle found in Hawai‘i. Honu are ‘aumakua, or ancestral guardians to many Native Hawaiian families. They are a federally protected species and feeding or touching the honu is dangerous to them and against the law. An important cultural symbol in Hawai‘i, the ancient honu appears in Hawaiian legends and folklore. Adult honu grow to 45” and can weigh up to 400 pounds. Honu can be found in many Hawaiian waters, eating limu, seaweed, off rocks in tide pools and in the shallow waters along the shore.

Caren learned the ancient art of block printing from her mother. She volunteers and researches on Midway Atoll, Kīlauea Point, and other wild places around the Hawaiian Islands. Caren creates art for many organizations, supporting the work they do on behalf of wildlife, conservation, and the perpetuation of Hawaiian Culture.

Caren’s award winning illustrated books include Manu, the Boy Who Loved Birds, A Perfect Day for an Albatross, Naupaka, Lono and the Magical Land Beneath the Sea, Hawaiian Legends of Dreams, Hawaiian Legends of the Guardian Spirits, Pua Polu, the Pretty Blue Hawaiian Flower, Tree of Souls, and Legend of the Gourd.

Ordered four prints including Midway and Alala Love - I have both of them as jigsaw puzzles and had to get the prints :-) Quick shipping and very well packaged up - Caren included a free extra as thanks which was totally unexpected. Beautiful artwork - now I have to visit another favorite Etsy store to get frames made!

Caren Loebel-Fried's "Kilauea Point" is a gorgeous print, exceedingly crafted and well-packaged for delivery. Caren's artwork is radiant. I've put "Kilauea Point" on the wall alongside my earlier purchase of the equally beautiful "Midway." And I'm already imagining a third print by Caren! And a fourth!

It arrived very well packaged & included some wonderful history & even had a surprise pack of notecards I wasn't expecting. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work with us! I can't wait to frame it & hang it in my home!

Very happy to have found Caren’s work on Etsy! I have always loved her note cards and thought they were only available at the Volcano Art Center Gallery on Hawai’i Island. Now I don’t ever have to wait until my next trip to purchase! She shipped my order quickly with a lovely personalized note and even included extra note cards 🥰
