Hi Thought I had written you that the print was marred on arrival....Looks like the tube was damaged and affected the print (see photos below) Would LOVE to give this a great review as I love you guys...but still need an undamaged print. I went head and gave as the birthday gift with the promise of the unscathed one...said it would be coming. (I had asked for a replacement but haven't heard back.) Didn't get a photo of the full poster, but the damaged parts are all along the same line...which prompted me to check the tube...

Artist's Description

"Mele Kalikimaka" is the English phrase "Merry Christmas" as pronounced in Hawaiian. The missionaries reduced the Hawaiian language to written form, enabling the Hawaiian people to read and write in their own language. Many words for which there were no clear Hawaiian language equivalents were translated phonetically. The words "Mele Kalikimaka" are a phonetic translation. When the missionaries and other Westerners first brought the custom of Christmas to the Hawaiian Islands, the Hawaiians had difficulty pronouncing Merry Christmas and turned it into words that rolled more easily off their tongues. This was one of nine 4'x8' paintings by Eugene Francis Savage (1883-1978) called "Island Feast". The paintings were commissioned by the Matson Shipping line in 1948. This image was restored to its original state by James Temple from an old lithographed menu cover used in the dining room of the refurbished Matson flagship "Lurline".

About James Temple

James Temple

I've lived in Hawaii since 2002, 1200 feet above sea level, on the small rural island of Moloka'i. It is very quiet here, with only about 7,400 residents. I appreciate the quiet life after spending 35 years as a commercial illustrator, senior art director and design director for major advertising agencies and design studios in Chicago, San Francisco and Palo Alto California. I've always loved cooking. In 2002 that love led me to a degree in the Culinary Arts just before moving to Hawaii. Since then I designed and built a house, worked in local restaurants, self-published three cookbooks, and took up photography as a hobby. Now retired, I spend most of my time developing recipes and photographing them, plus researching and writing...
