"Hawaiian Cowboy" was inspired both from the book “Two Years Before the Mast” and a trip by the artist to learn of the Hawaiian cowboys or “Paniolos” ship and cattle history. With the arrival of Western ships, cattle found their way to the Hawaiian Islands, spawning a rich tradition of cowboy and ranch culture. The cowboy would swim cattle to and from ships. Horses and cows are great swimmers!
