The custom artwork that graces the exterior of the airstream was ideated, hand painted and brought to life by Kamea Hadar, one of the three heads Pow! Wow! Hawaii.

"My aim was to capture the beauty of Hawaii’s ‘mea kanu’ which refers to anything that is planted. Queen Emma had a great love of gardening and on her lands she enjoyed much of Hawaii’s flora including her favorite flowers, lilies. In the piece among other local mea kanu the focal points of color belong to Persian Lillies, Tiger Lillies, and Spider Lillies which are also known as Queen Emma Lilies. My aim was to creat a piece where people could feel like they were in the Queens garden, and enjoy these beautiful flowers the way that she did throughout her life."
