THE ARTWORK + THE ARTISTS
This creative Elephant artwork with a rice motif depicts the life and love of India. Elephants represent good luck! Now, you can carry luck around with you!
The Henna Artwork depicts India. The rice in the hands are shaped in a heart and represents giving. Good karma. Good Vibes.
The ELEPHANT and HENNA illustrations were created by Sarah Querido. Originally from Japan, Querido now lives in Texas with her husband and new baby. Follow Querido’s work on Instagram @sarahquerido.
The Mandala Artwork represents the idea that everything is connected, like a circle. Our rice giving is like this, too. For example: you buy a bag, it feeds a family, that family is then able to send their child to school instead of work, that child grows and contributes to the world. We are all interconnected. What goes around, comes around.

The Pineapple Artwork can be interpreted in many different ways. Pineapples are iconic in Hawaii, representing welcome and aloha. However, not everything is paradise in Hawaii. Homelessness ranks #1 in Hawaii for the 50 US states. The disintegrating rice depicts this problem. The reintegration of rice represents the hope we have to solve the growing problem of hungry in Hawaii. Good vibes.
The illustration was created by Kris Goto. Originally from Japan, Goto is making a name for herself in the Hawaii art scene. Check her out at krisgoto.com.
