Masina. She translates to both “moon” and “month” in Samoan. Our ancestors in Samoa used the moon to help tell time and develop the monthly calendar, making Masina the keeper of time and the tides. Masina is also a common Samoan name, including the beautiful, confident, and fiercely independent force that was my Nana. Masina. My guiding light in times of darkness. My forever muse.
This print is handprinted on 100% cotton 90lb/250gsm acid free Stonehenge white paper using traditional black block printing ink, measuring 9x12in. The moon is hand painted with Regency Gold Liquid Metal.
