This modern stained glass plant pattern is a Kauai stained glass design for a tropical plant, reminiscent of those you'd see on the island. It is a printable pattern, and 20% of all proceeds from the tropical leaves pattern series are donated to the Kaua'i museum in Lihue, Kaua'i. More details are below, including the significance of this pattern's name, Polihale.

PATTERN SERIES: This pattern is part of a tropical leaves series with names based on some of the most beautiful places in Kaua’i, Hawai’i, a place that has personal meaning and significance for me. Polihale, a long, sandy, remote beach at the southern end of the Na’Pali coast, on the western side of Kauai, occupies a special place in Hawaiian mythology. The remains of an ancient stone temple to the dead, a He’iau, are found there today, as are traces of cave dwellings and gravesites for ancient Hawaiians, who believed this spectacular place was a leina, or jumping-off place for the souls of the dead. Other stories and traditional songs speak of Polihale and its special sea lettuce as a goddess-granted source of life. It is important to me to both celebrate and honor Kaua’i and its heritage. To do that, I have chosen to donate 20% of all proceeds from the Tropical Leaves pattern series to the Kaua’i Museum, which strives to collect and preserve ancient artifacts and current artwork, and connect them to today’s communities on the island. A hui hou, Joanne!
