Naupaka Flowers

Naupaka Flowers

Naupaka flowers.
The flowers are shaped as if they have been cut in half. Many legends associated with these unique half flowers.
In one version a young woman tears the flower in half after a quarrel with her boyfriend. The God was angered, and turned her into Naupaka flowers, and made all Naupaka flowers into half until the boyfriend find the whole flower.


ナウパカの花。

ハワイには、この花にまつわる伝説が数々ある。

その一つは・・

娘が彼氏と口論をして、ナウパカの花を二つにちぎってしまった。

それを見た神様は怒り、娘をナウパカの花に変えてしまう。

ナウパカの花も、彼氏が全円のナウパカを探すまでは、半分のまま、というもの。
