|Unknown, mysterious symbol painted at the Hookipa pillbox. It's not an astrological sign. I looked through a book of symbolism and couldn't find this symbol. Any ideas? Photo taken 5/1/16 Update: Hurray! Sara Snider commented below that this is the Prince symbol, what Prince changed his name too. And it's also Unpronounceable. LOL. Did anyone else know what it was?|
|Another unknown symbol. TP and IN. Or T, P and IN. Any thoughts? Pic taken 9/13/13.|
|For a change of pace, this was a painted coconut at the beach, and hung up high from a kiawe tree. And it's underwear! Why???? Another unknown story. A practical joke?|
|On the surface, a yin yang sign, but underneath there is a unicorn. This street art refers to Charli Scott who went missing. On the side is written: "She's a unicorn among beasts."|
|Entertaining upcountry mailboxes. Upcountry Maui is a state of mind as well as a place. My favorite is "Here lies a stranger shot while stealing mail."|
My theme this year is “Signs, Stickers, Street Art, and Graffiti on Maui.” As a departure from my A to Z Challenge posts in previous years, the blog posts will be very short. To read more about my theme and how I interpreted it, visit here.
Many of my photos depict a structure from WWII, a concrete building that used to be an old communications station. It’s visible from the highway near Hookipa, a famous windsurfing spot. Although the pillbox is located on private land, it has become something of a community message board, and is painted and repainted with greetings, signs, random pictures and graffiti. I think of it as the Hookipa pillbox – if you google “WWII pillbox, ” you’ll see similar structures.
